About this title


Three hundred years of English history comes alive through the lives and fortunes of the inhabitants of Ulverton, a fictional village on England's Wessex Downs

From the Inside Flap:

Made up of twelve self-contained narratives set in the fictional village of Ulverton from 1650 to 1988, each section of the novel, with the exception of the final chapter, has a narrator who is also the principle character. Chapters take the form of a diary, a narrators stream-of-consciousness, a series of letters and a traditional first person narrative.

is extraordinary in scope and ambition and the imaginative way that it deals with three centuries of seemingly authentic private experiences in rural England.
