not yet rated|write a review

Spanning the first twenty-three years of his remarkable life, Laurie Lee's celebrated autobiographical trilogy is presented here in one delightful volume.

Beginning with Cider with Rosie, Laurie Lee writes evocatively of his idyllic childhood in the Cotswolds of the twenties, a world of rich sensuousness and native innocence. 'As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning' picks up the story as he leaves his valley for London and then for Spain. There, equipped only with a violin and his wits, he crossed the dramatic landscape of a vibrant and still almost medieval Spain for which he developed an abiding affection. In the winter of 1937 he returned to a country now in the grip of Civil War and joined the International Brigade, describing in A Moment of War his journey into the dark side of Spain with unsparing honesty and poignancy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great book It is a great book and I would be willing to buy it in electronic format. Unfortunately the Kobo price is about twice what it sells for on Kindle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Collection of Classics I first read these books whilst at school. Thirty five years later and 'As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning' still makes me want to head off to Spain and travel through it off the beaten path.. A Moment of War is a wonderful sequel too. Without doubt, my favourite book. I have it in hardback, soft back & on my IPad & Kobo.
