A masterly evocation of childhood and its influences on the adult mind, from the author of The Go-Between

A lonely boy living on his uncle's farm in the Lincolnshire Fens, Richard Mardick's solitary existence is interrupted by a chance meeting, and idyllic love affair, with Lucy. A disused brickfield is the scene of their clandestine meetings, and it is there that Richard finds her drowned in a muddy pool. Forced by circumstances to look back on these days, Richard finds himself recounting this episode to his secretary. Its shattering significance throughout the rest of his life is put into remarkable perspective by the unusual framework with which Hartley has enclosed his story.

About the Author:

L. P. Hartley (1895-1972) was a British novelist and short story writer. His best-known novels are the Eustace and Hilda trilogy and The Go-Betweeners.

Review:

"This fine novelist still has the courage as well as the skill to excavate in those layers of consciousness from which many newer writers turn hopelessly away." —Guardian

"The economy of the book is a wonder, and the power to conjure past time while staying awake to the present as remarkable as one would expect." —Spectator
