Poetical and evocative,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cider With Rosie (Vintage Classics) (Paperback)
Singularly the most beautiful, eloquent and poignant book I have ever read. More a poem to a lost age. The first page alone is a masterpiece of descriptive writing and draws you in to a world of rural English country-life in its dying embers, a life about to face the onset of modernity.
I cannot believe that it took me 46 years to 'discover' the poetical beauty of this memoir and feel robbed that I never encountered this work during my education.
An utterly stunning ode to childhood.
