We are not expected to overlook the personal themes of his book. A compulsive flirt, to put it more politely than he might himself, Warne was clearly damaged by his divorce, although he and Simone remain friendly. However, his separation from Elizabeth Hurley, with whom he lived in Gloucestershire and London, has obviously, to borrow a cricketing phrase, knocked him for six. There is a touch of Sinatra and Ava Gardner about their relationship. Hurley took something from him that he will never get back, and perhaps never knew that he had.
