Originally published in a very limited printing in England in 1951, this enchanting rediscovery is set in a small villa among the dunes of Le Toquet. It is the story of two energetic, mischievous and sensitive children and their encounters with a privileged set of adult visitors who are in Normandy for the season and who could well have stepped out of a novel by P.G. Wodehouse. This magical novel, which takes place between two world wars, will remind readers of Dodie Smith’s I Capture the Castle and Gerald Durrell’s My Family and Other Animals.

Michael Burn will be 95 when Childhood at Oriol is released. As a reporter for The Times, he covered both the abdication of Edward VIII, later the Duke of Windsor, and the faked Hungarian trial of Cardinal Mindszenty.

Review:

An enchanting story of the fairy-tale-like youth of two British children in a town of whimsical events and dramatic characters. -- Rain Taxi, Fall 2005

Stately... Burn's beguiling, genteelly detached voice conjures the full but narrow world of an expatriate Englishwoman. -- New York Times Book Review, June 5, 2005
