A Few Fair Days


These vignettes of a child's life on the Yorkshore coast were a little too self-consciously opaque for my taste, but they're vivid (that ship on the sands...) and I expect they'll reward rereading.The book's description here on goodreads states that it's set between the wars — had I not seen that, I would have guessed Edwardian. There's something very late-Victorian about the plethora of maiden aunts (too many to keep straight) and their carefully ordered homes.And there was nothing in any of the descriptions that would have been out of place had the book been set 30 years earlier.The last chapter, with its explicit mention of current events and the coming war was oddly jarring, as though we'd suddenly leapt forward in time.
