Cider with Rosie by Laurie Lee
Cider with Rosie is a magical account of growing up in a Cotswold village during and immediately after the First World War. With a poet’s quiet alchemy Laurie Lee conjures up a world of carthorses and candlelight. Amongst the stories we meet family heroes, such as Lee’s uncles with their colourful tales from the wider world, and alarming local outlaws like Cabbage-Stump Charlie, who sets out each evening, armed with a cabbage stalk, to strike down the first man he sees. Hilarious and heartbreaking by turns, Cider with Rosie is at once an evocation, a celebration and a lament, an unforgettable portrait of a childhood and an England lost forever.
