Introduced by Anne Brichto of Addyman Books in Hay-on-Wye
This bookseller’s breakfast is to let people know about the works of Henry Williamson. His most famous book is ‘Tarka the Otter’.
Williamson’s life and work spanned much of the 20th century. He is one of our best country life writers and his series of novels ‘A Chronicle of Ancient Sunlight’ ran to 15 volumes. He died the same day the death of Tarka was being filmed.
As much as I enjoy his nature writing I hate his politics. He was a fascist which makes me have a love/hate feeling when I handle his books.
The egg and toast soldiers are build me up for a weekend with the family and the summer fruit smoothie is to give me hope in this season of everlasting rain.
