Cider With Rosie

At all times wonderfully evocative and poignant, Cider With Rosie is a charming memoir of Laurie Lee’s childhood in a remote Cotswold village, a world that is tangibly real and yet reminiscent of a now distant past.

In this idyllic pastoral setting, unencumbered by the callous father who so quickly abandoned his family responsibilities, Laurie’s adoring mother becomes the c

In this idyllic pastoral setting, unencumbered by the callous father who so quickly abandoned his family responsibilities, Laurie’s adoring mother becomes the centre of his world as she struggles to raise a growing family against the backdrop of the Great War.

The sophisticated adult author’s retrospective commentary on events is endearingly juxtaposed with that of the innocent, spotty youth, permanently prone to tears and self-absorption.

Rosie’s identity from the novel Cider with Rosie was kept secret for 25 years. She was Rose Buckland, Lee’s cousin by marriage.

    I asked my boyfriend if he had ever been physically aroused by a work of fiction while reading on a bus or train.

    “Oh, many a time,” he said.

    “Really? Did you get an erection?”

    “Yes, of course. Isn’t that what you meant? It doesn’t happen so much now,” he said.

    “Because you are cynical and you’ve seen it all before?”

    “Partly that,” he concurred. “But also because my blood is more sluggish and I have lost the vigour of youth.”

    “When was the last time you got an erection while reading in a public place?

    “Oh, many a time,” he said.

    “Really? Did you get an erection?”

    “Yes, of course. Isn’t that what you meant? It doesn’t happen so much now,” he said.

    “Because you are cynical and you’ve seen it all before?”

    “Partly that,” he concurred. “But also because my blood is more sluggish and I have lost the vigour of youth.”

    “When was the last time you got an erection while reading in a public place?” I asked eagerly.

    “When reading your last email to me,” he said without hesitation. He’s a pretty quick-witted guy, actually. That’s why he’s my boyfriend. 🙂

    “What about the first time?” I asked. “How old were you?”

    “Oh, I didn’t need books when I was in the first flush of puberty,” he said. “I used to get an erection on the bus just looking at all the pretty schoolgirls going up and down the stairs.”

    “You’re a pervert,” I said.

    “But the first book that made me miss my stop because I was unable to leave my seat due to the large bulge in my trousers was Cider With Rosie.”

    “By Laurie Lee?”

    “Indeed. That old English classic. It’s a rural idyll. And you can’t have a rural idyll without a romp in the hay so why they give it to pubescent boys as a set text at school I’ll never know. It’s like putting a stick of dynamite down their pants.”

    “Dynamite?”

    “Well, you know what I mean. I looked like I had a stick of dynamite down my pants when I got off that bus anyway. And then we had to write our own memoir in a similar vein. The teacher even gave us the title. The First Bite Of The Cherry. And you call me a pervert.”

    “That’s a public school English education for you,” I said.

    “Exactly,” he said. “It’s astonishing I turned out normal.”

    “If you were normal you wouldn’t be able to satisfy me,” I said.

    But that’s another story altogether.

    When you are transported directly into the childhood of the writer, you know this is a good biography. When you smell the very air, when you feel that what the characters are smiling about is a scene of intense everyday hilarity, and when you want to visit THERE* (for just a second, just for the sake of both reader and writer, just for the sake of experience), well, then you know you are dealing with a superlative type of novel, which weaves truth with literature at an almost-mythical level.

    it was amazing

    Before I started reading this book, I was warned that it is extremely boring, or as my colleague put it ‘200 pages of absolutely nothing going on, that it’s a complete waste of paper and time as well.
    But after I’d read a few pages, I quickly realized that I was enjoying the book immensely. I love the way he describes simple, everyday things, feelings, smells in a way that instantly makes you feel nostalgic about your childhood, that makes you wish to go out of town and settle in the countryside.
