by Ronald Blythe.
Short book about veteran author's extremely old house.
I read this short book in a single sitting. Ronald Blythe is one of my favourite writers. In this short book, which I read in a single sitting, he writes and ruminates about the history of his old yeoman's farmhouse in Suffolk, the previous owner of which was his close friend, the artist John Nash. It is far from a meaty book, but as enjoyable as Blythe's other works. The quality of the paper in my hardback edition was fabulous—an increasingly rare treat these days.
