9780099421979: My Uncle Silas

The deeds and misdeeds of Uncle Silas, the rural reprobate, were renowned in the short stories H E Bates published in the 1930s.In this collection the stories are presented in full, accompanied by the original drawings by Edward Ardizzone that perfectly capture the little reed-thatched house atop a violet-banked lane.Over the course of ninety-five years Uncle Silas found the time to do most things: He boasted of the villains he had knocked to kingdom come as he boasted of the women whose hearts he had truly captured. Crotchety, vainglorious, occasionally wicked, he maintained a devilish spark of audacity which made him so attractive to everyone he met.

This collection brings together the deeds and misdeeds of Uncle Silas, the rural reprobate H. E. Bates made so popular in the stories published in various magazines throughout the 1930's. Accompanied by the original drawings by Edward Ardizzone this edition captures perfectly the atmosphere of the thatched houses along the violet-banked country lanes.
