Cider With Rosie

Cider With Rosie

Author(s): Laurie Lee

Location(s): The Cotswolds

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): 1959

The classic evocative tale of an idyllic childhood in the English countryside

Cider with Rosie is a wonderfully vivid memoir of childhood in a remote Cotswold village, a village before electricity or cars, a timeless place on the verge of change. Growing up amongst the fields and woods and characters of the place, Laurie Lee depicts a world that is both immediate and real and belongs to a now-distant past.

‘Remains as fresh and full of joy and gratitude for youth and its sensations as when it first appeared. It sings in the memory’ Sunday Times
