Many of Causley's stories hint at autobiography, they certainly draw on his wartime experience. I particularly like 'An experience of life', sketching out a schoolmaster's day, well up to midday, and the Head's view of why he should not write a reference... until the master's Chief Petty Officer turns up and addresses the school. There's something missing from these stories and I am not sure what yet they possess an honesty and, if you are Cornish or enjoy Cornuphilia, this must be read.
