As one half of the hilarious comedy duo Morecambe and Wise, who famously combined the era of music hall with the age of television, Eric Morecambe was a national institution. He was loved by millions and his popularity today is as enduring as ever. Since Eric died in 1984 his son Gary has found that many of those who knew him or worked with him had a story that they wanted to share. From public clowning to private moments and his quick-fire wit, these anecdotes reveal a rare glimpse of the qualities that made Eric Morecambe unique. In Memories of Eric, Gary Morecambe and co-editor Martin Sterling have drawn together over a hundred stories from celebrities like Judi Dench, Chris Tarrant, Des O'Connor, Diana Rigg and Alan Bennett, as well as family and friends. First published by Andre Deutsch in 1999, this first paperback edition coincides with the 20th Anniversary of Eric Morecambe's death.
