I know it has been out for ages – published 2003 – but I saw it in a charity shop for £1 when I left the office today to stretch my legs.
What a delightful book. I am now curious to know where the writer got all his knowledge, for it displays great understanding. I realise this question has probably featured in all sorts of places and reviews, but I have missed them all.
Anyway, a great book. It successfully takes the reader into another place, into another life.
