South facing slope, writings from COUNTRY LIFE, signed

£4.99

Product description

Born on the banks of the Yazoo River in Greenwood, Mississippi, Carla Carlisle was raised in the heat of civil-rights activism and Vietnam protests. Her life took an abrupt turn at age 38 when she married Sir Kenneth Carlisle, a farmer and Tory member of Parliament, and moved into Wyken Hall, an Elizabethan manor house that has been the Carlisle family home for four generations. Within three years she had planted a vineyard that now produces some of the best wine in England, converted a 400-year old barn into a popular vineyard restaurant, produced a son, and turned an ancient Suffolk estate into a hotbed of defiant utopianism. She also began putting her thoughts on the divide between town and country, New World and Old, on paper for that most English institution, COUNTRY LIFE.
Carla Carlisle writes about farming, literature, boarding schools, dogs, wines and death. She admits a 'river of melancholy' runs through her writing, but her views of English country life will make you laugh out loud.

The book is signed by the author on the title page, without dedication.

Hard back book with dust jacket. There are a few marks of wear on the dust jacket, but otherwise the book and jacket are in very good condition throughout.
