Essays on literature, art and the countryside.
I'm a big fan of Ronald Blythe's gentle writing style. His Wormingford series of diaries, which first appeared in his regular column in The Church Times should be seen as a national treasure. Field Work is a series of essays about the countryside and country writers. As always with Blythe, they are good-natured, well-observed, and an extremely enjoyable read.
