9780099561446: Cider With Rosie (Vintage Classics)

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY MICHAEL MORPURGO

Summer was also the time of these: of sudden plenty, of slow hours and actions, of diamond haze and dust on the eyes; of jazzing wasps and dragonflies, haystooks and thistle-seeds, snows of white butterflies, skylark's eggs, bee-orchids, and frantic ants... All this, and the feeling that it would never end, that such days had come forever... All sights twice-brilliant and smells twice-sharp, all game-days twice as long... we used up the light to its last violet drop, and even then we couldn't go to bed.

Cider With Rosie is the best and most vital kind of memoir, rich with colourful, sensuous impressions of life in an English village after the First World War. It overflows with stories and characters made fantastical by the writer's child-perspective, and it draws the reader irresistibly into the lost land of the past. With this beautiful special edition, Vintage Classics celebrates 100 years since the birth of the author, Laurie Lee, and salutes this remarkable, surprising and well-loved classic.

Includes fascinating extra material from the Laurie Lee archive at the British Museum about the author's life and the first publication of Cider With Rosie

Review:

"Utterly captivating" ( Four Shires)

"A classic of English literature" ( Good Book Guide)

"It has got a marvellous morning freshness. There is hardly a sentence in it that does not set the sense of touch and smell, as well as sight and hearing, tingling" ( Daily Mail)

"This [edition] is a lovely thing and will bring many new devotees to Lee’s works" (Kate Saunders Saga Magazine)

"Remains as fresh and full of joy and gratitude for youth and its sensations as when it first appeared. It sings in the memory" ( Sunday Times)

Review:

one of Susan Hampshire's `Six Best Books': `utterly charming'
