Book Description

15 Sep 2005 Allways Trilogy
This reprint of the third book in Nichols' "Allways Trilogy" contains a new foreword by Bryan Connon, Beverley Nichols' biographer. Set in the English countryside, the hilarious memoir is as much about the author's love for plants as it is about the village in which he lived. The depictions of flowers and ornamentals - 'A single one of those gloxinias would be an event in Allways...I should give a party for it' - are both inspiring and unforgettable. This is the voice of one whose chief endowment is an appreciation for plants and the landscape, including a keen understanding of the importance gardens play in an increasingly modern world.

Product Description

Review

While the ostensible topics are houses and people, it is Nichols' love of gardening, and the villagers who either encourage him or thwart him in its pursuit, that remains the lively theme through all the books. -- Valerie Easton Seattle Times 20050916 At first glance, the book might appear sweet and a little cute, but don't be fooled. Nichols knows how to throw out a few zingers and reveal his true feelings with a good dose of sarcasm. Nichols is as observant as Jane Austen, as witty as Oscar Wilde, and as sentimental as James Herriott. He also happens to be as funny, timely, and un-P.C. as Jon Stewart. Home and Garden 20060101

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than "A Thatched Roof" 23 Dec 2011
Format:Hardcover
Fans of Nichols will not be disappointed. Perhaps the most uplifting part of the book is the ending, in which Nichols imagines himself returning to his much-loved country home as a ghost.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Village in a Valley (Allways Trilogy) 14 Oct 2011
By Mar65NL
Format:Hardcover
Beverley Nichols' books are a pleasure to read.
Village in a Valley is not exact a sequel on Thatched Roof and
Down to the Garden Path, but an enrichment.
Many characters and situations are recognizable and his style is
,as usual, a mix of humour, passion and simplicity.
