map end-papers; foreword by Richard Church; Reuben's Corner has become a minor classic since it was first published in 1969. The author's realistic account of his childhood in an isolated hamlet some sixty years ago recalls a rural way of life which has all but disappeared. In Bartlow Hamlet the road bends round by the cottage of Reuben Ford, Spike Mays's grandfather. This is Reuben's Corner, on the Camps road a mile from Ashdon, deep in the Essex countryside; and it was here that the author, christened Cedric, spent most of his childhood. Life was hard: there was never enough to eat, and children went to school in garments cut down from their parents' clothing. But young Ced also remembers the warmth and character of village life, whether he was singing in the church choir, working for the Squire cleaning silver, spying on courting couples in the . fields, or poaching pheasants in the woods.
