"I remember, too, the light on the slopes, long shadows in tufts and hollows, with cattle, brilliant as painted china, treading their echoing shapes."
'Cider With Rosie' is a wonderfully vivid memoir of Laurie Lee's childhood and youth in a remote Cotswold village. From the moment he is set down in the long grass, "thick as a forest and alive with grasshoppers", he depicts a world that is both tangibly real yet belonging to a now distant past.
