'The View in Winter' is a timeless and moving study of the perplexities of living to a great age, as related by a wide range of men and women: miners, villagers, doctors, teachers, craftsmen, soldiers, priests, the widowed and long-retired. Their voices are set in the context of what literature, art, religion and medicine over the centuries have said about ageing. The result is an acclaimed and compelling reflection on an inevitable aspect of our human experience.
Ronald Blythe CBE is one of the UK’s greatest living writers. His work, which has won countless awards, includes Akenfield (a Penguin 20th Century Classic and a feature film), Private Words, Field Work, Outsiders: a Book of Garden Friends and numerous other titles. He was awarded the Royal Society of Literature’s prestigious Benson Medal. He lives near Colchester.
"True to form, this book is beautifully crafted. The perceptions of ageing gleaned from the aged themselves, illuminate the ageing process both sharply and eloquently. Interspersed with Ronald Blythe's own insights the narrative although grounded in earthly experience, touches the soul and lifts the spirit heavenward.(...) As the ultimate antidote to the plethora of accounts of celebrity lifestyles, this is an absolute must." Sue Harry Reader, St John's, Lakenham Norwich, Across the Sea, July/August 2005.
