  • Terrific . . . what makes Mabey's appreciation of Lark Rise's shape-shifting so compelling is that he never makes the mistake of thinking that the original was summoned up by some act of the collective unconscious. Instead, he reminds us of Thompson's awkward and patient achievement, as the sole creator of a bona fide work of art

  • Dreams Of The Good Life is a gem of a book, small, perfectly formed, informative and, as his title suggests, dreamy
