Red Sky at Sunrise : Cider with Rosie, as I Walked out One Midsummer Morning, a Moment of War Paperback
by Laurie Lee
This is a beautiful new edition of Laurie Lee's celebrated autobiographical trilogy: Cider with Rosie, As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning and A Moment of War. 'I was set down from the carrier's cart at the age of three; and there with a sense of bewilderment and terror my life in the village began.' 'This trilogy is a sequence of early recollections, beginning with the dazzling lights and sounds of my first footings on earth in a steep Cotswold valley some three miles long.
For nineteen years this was the limit of my world, then one midsummer morning I left home and walked to London and down the blazing length of Spain during the innocent days of the early thirties.
Never had I felt so fat with time, so free to go where I would.
Then such indulgence was suddenly broken by the savage outbreak of the Civil War..." (Laurie Lee).
