From the cover: “In Great Meadow Dirk Bogarde takes us once more to a lost world and an almost forgotten time, which we visited fleetingly in the first part of his autobiography, A Postillion Struck by Lightning. From 1927 to 1934 he lived in a remote cottage in the Sussex Downs, with his sister Elizabeth and their devoted but strict nanny, ‘Lally’. This was a time of the gleaning at the end of summer, of harvests and harvest mice, of oil lamps, of wells and of incredible childhood adventures. Seen through the eyes of an innocent, shrewd young boy, Great Meadow recaptures an idyllic childhood, a time of love and gentleness, with its sounds and scents intact, while the world beyond prepared for war.”
