About the Author:

RONALD BLYTHE is one of today's national literary treasures. His work, which has won numerous awards, includes Akenfield (now a Penguin 20th Century Classic - it was also made into a feature film by Peter Hall), Private Words, Divine Landscapes, Going to Meet George and numerous other titles. He lives near Colchester.

Review:

Val Hennessy, Daily Mail 'Quite simply, this book is a little masterpiece. It comprises a collection of Blythe's writings about the Parish year at his Suffolk village of Wormingford. It is written, for the most part, in prose of such sheer beauty that it brings tears to the eyes.' Geoffrey Moorhouse, Daily Telegraph 'A series of miniatures, some of no more than three paragraphs, unified in the context of East Anglian countryside and Church of England. Each is perfectly balanced, and aperfect topic in itself for meditation. Lucky are the three Suffolk benefices which enjoy Mr Blythe's services as Reader, and fortunate therest of us that the author of Akenfield is still producing the most sensitive, the best informed and the most elegant prose devoted wholly to the rural England of our time.' Elisabeth Luard, Saturday Times 'Gentle reader, there is a treat in store. A gift of clear wa ter from a deep well. Sweetly, oh so sweetly, do we slip into the poet's pocket. In Akenfield, the book with which Ronald Blythe made his name, we saw what we once were. In Word From Wormingford, we see what we hope we may still remain.' Robert Runcie, Observer '[Blythe's] "Words from Wormingford" have been a weekly treat for readers of the Church Times. In the tradition of Gainsborough and Constable, they are landscapes in words, miniature summaries of a week in the life of a village, its churchand its people, against the background of changing seasons (so much more dominant for life in the country than for townsfolk). Now Blythe has collected his work for a wider audience, enriched by the hauntinglyaustere engravings of John Nash, who previously lived in Blythe's remote farmhouse...Blythe's prose is full of quiet wit, keen observationsand sober reflection.'
