Publisher's Summary

From 1927 to 1934 Dirk Bogarde 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 the 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. This is the sequel to the first volume of Dirk Bogarde’s autobiography, A Postillion Struck by Lightning.
