Product description

Review

Tender and elegant (Guardian)

Unlike anything else in modern English Literature (D.J. Taylor Spectator)

Carr's blessedly small tale of lost love is also a small hymn about art and the compensating joy of the artist, both in giving and receiving. It stays with us, too, and is oddly haunting (New Yorker)

Carr has the magic touch to re-enter the imagined past (Penelope Fitzgerald)

About the Author

James Lloyd Carr, born 1912, attended the village school at Carlton Miniott in the North Riding and Castleford Secondary School. He died in Northamptonshire in 1994. His novel A Month in the Country won the Guardian Fiction Prize, was shortlisted for the Booker Prize and made into a memorable film.
