Each time it fills me with such joy of escapism, with both laughter and tears at the beauty and pathos of the prose, I just hate to finish it, and therefore linger for days over the last few pages. It is an invitation to his next, A Moment of War, which I urge you to read too.
Laurie Lee, whom I would have loved to have met, encapsulates the mystery of my beloved Spain. His descriptive prose are unique, although written before the hideous Civil War, it is as vivid today as then. It is simply a story of enchantment.
How many times I have yearned just to disappear into the real Spain that still exists. Where the foreigner who tries to speak the language is greatly welcomed and appreciated.
I defy anybody not to fall in love with As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning.
There a strong element of adventure, where he often sleeps under the stars, and it must have taken a great deal of courage to head off into the unknown with little money or knowledge of the country. Perhaps his in depth descriptive prose may be too much for some, but stick with it, it's well worth the effort.
It has been a delight to read this book again.
Gerry Mc Menemy.
