By Laurie Lee
The classic evocative tale of an idyllic childhood in the English countryside. Cider with Rosie is a wonderfully vivid memoir of childhood in a remote Cotswold village, a village before electricity or cars, a timeless place on the verge of change.
Growing up amongst the fields and woods and characters of the place, Laurie Lee depicts a world that is both immediate and real and belongs to a now-distant past.
'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
