The Hidden Roads: A Memoir of Childhood

Kevin Crossley-Holland

Write Review

Rated 0

Autobiography: literary, Prose: non-fiction

A moving, beautifully-crafted memoir from a classic, multiple award-winning children's author.

In these pages, Kevin Crossley-Holland visits the foreign land of childhood. First memories as a war-baby; starting a museum; being coached at Lord's; living above the spring line below the great chalk cross at Whiteleaf in the Chiltern Hills, and roaming in the beechwoods; holidays on the north Norfolk coast; falling under the spell of Arthurian legend

Above all, The Hidden Roads revolves around the sanctity and splintering of family, and the bonding of brother and sister, and is steeped in the landscapes and layers of England.
