Laurie Lee came from the Stroud valleys not so very far from where I grew up His Cotswold childhood happened back when cars were still a rareity when the world was a far less industrial place There s a nostalgia for the past here for lost innocence The writing is beautiful There are sorrows and hard times as well though its not jsut a rose tinted view of a rural youth As I walked out takes Lee across Spain walking and busking This section of his life really caught my imagination although I ve never had the nerve to do anything like it it s fuelled my daydreaming for many years More evocative prose and a great adventureA Moment of War as Spain plunged into civil war Lee felt obliged to go back and participate what follows is dark insane and deeply disturbing a haunting recollection of a terrible conflictHaving all three books in one volume is a great asset They re wildly different in character and all very good reads Cider with Rosie might be the most famous but I feel the other two are far stronger books much adult and provocativeLaurie Lee was also a poet so if you enjoy these you might want to look out his other work
