First Folio edition. Cider with Rosie is a magical account of growing up in a Cotswold village during and immediately after the First World War. With a poet’s quiet alchemy Laurie Lee conjures up a world of carthorses and candlelight. Amongst the stories we meet family heroes, such as Lee’s uncles with their colourful tales from the wider world, and alarming local outlaws like Cabbage-Stump Charlie, who sets out each evening, armed with a cabbage stalk, to strike down the first man he sees. Above all, in a wry, grateful and profoundly moving portrait, there is Lee’s mother, with her indestructible gaiety, her awe of the gentry and her unceasing, unspoken longing for her husband’s return – not to mention her difficulties with riding a bicycle: ‘She had to be launched on her way by running parties of villagers; and to stop she rode into a hedge...’ Beautifully crafted, imaginative editions of the world’s great works of fiction and non-fiction, Folio Society books offer a rich literary experience to readers of all ages. The books selected for publication are timeless – they will be enjoyed and appreciated now and in the future. Because each book is considered as an individual object of value in its own right, there is a variety to our aesthetic – the only uniformity is in the quality of every single book.
