Product Description
A funny and heartbreaking new book from one of Britain's favourite and bestselling writers. <br><br>Welcome to the village of Notwithstanding where a lady dresses in plus fours and shoots squirrels, a retired general gives up wearing clothes altogether, a spiritualist lives in a cottage with the ghost of her husband, and people think it quite natural to confide in a spider that lives in a potting shed. Based on de Bernières' recollections of the village he grew up in, <b>Notwithstanding</b> is a funny and moving depiction of a charming vanished England.
