The Folks That Live On The Hill, Paperback / softback Book

The Folks That Live On The Hill Paperback / softback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series

Description

Harry Caldecote is the most charming man you'll ever meet, a convivial academic who devotes his life to others.

He is on call when his alcoholic niece falls into strange hands, when his brother threatens to emulate Wordsworth, when his son's lesbian lodger is beaten up by her girlfriend.

He endures misplaced seductions, swindles and aggressive dogs just to keep the peace at the King's pub in Shepherd's Hill.

But when the Adams' Institute of Cultural and Commercial History in America offers him the opportunity to do 'whatever he wanted to do' in a picturesque lakeside town, he faces a choice between freedom or responsibility - and whether to take charge of his own life.
