9780192813435: Corduroy

These volumes comprise Bell's celebrated trilogy of novelized memoirs set in the West Suffolk countryside between the two World Wars. The lasting fascination of all three books lies in the contrast between the natural hopefulness of their young author and the economic hopelessness of the scene to which he has committed his life. "A fine and delightful achievement."--The Times (London)

Adrian Bell was a journalist on the Observer before becoming a farmer in East Anglia.

About the Author:

Adrian Bell (1901-1980) was born in Lancashire, grew up in London, and was educated at Uppingham School which he hated. His father, news editor of the Observer, was a republican and a socialist and had no truck with university education. His son was to do something useful; in 1920 he went to East Anglia to work as a farm apprentice. He subsequently became a farmer himself. These experiences provide the material for his famous rural trilogy, Corduroy, Silver Ley and The Cherry Tree. In total he wrote over twenty-five books, he also set the first Times in 1930 and continued to devise crosswords for the paper for the next thirty years.
