Laurie Lee knows one sentence in Spanish – will you please give me a glass of water. That is enough to take him down to the South Coast of England over to Spain at a time when all the signs of the impending Civil War are clearly visible. A lyrical and clear picture of a beautiful country on the brink of war.
