Cider with Rosie is the first part of the poet Laurie Lee's (1914-1997) autobiographical trilogy. It describes his life in the Gloucestershire village of Slad from his earliest years until he was twenty. He tells of thin winters, fat summers, local legends and ghosts, of neighbours and relations, and of growing up against a half-pagan landscape in which violence and madness, country follies and feasts were all part of one pastoral mess-pot. John Ward (1917-2007) was born in Hereford and was a noted book illustrator who gave the Prince of Wales his first professional lessons in painting.With an Afterword by Anna South

Laurie Lee was born in 1914 in Stroud, Gloucestershire. His most enduringly popular book Cider With Rosie was published in 1959, and was the first in an autobiographical trilogy that included As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning (1969) - which famously describes his walk to London and subsequent journey round Spain before the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War - and A Moment of War (1991). His varied literary output also included four collections of poetry, a verse play for radio and travel writing. Laurie Lee married in 1950, and together with his wife had one child. He died in 1997.Review:
"One of the great writers of the twentieth century."--"Independent ""An enchanting book, an exquisite farewell, not only to childhood, and boyhood, but also to an England that has vanished."--JB Priestly "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" "It has got... a marvellous morning freshness...There is hardly a sentence in it that does not set the sense of touch and smell, as well as sight and hearing, tingling"--"Daily Mail" "He had a nightingale inside him, a capacity for sensuous, lyrical precision"--"Guardian" "Lee was a poet whose deft passage into prose carried with it much of the rhythm and accuracy of the poet's language"--Mignon Khargie, Art Director of Salon
