The Book of Ebenezer Le Page. G.B. Edwards

The story of a tomato grower and fisherman who lives his whole life in Guernsey.
A languid book of quiet beauty recommended to me by a recently lost friend. Said friend is much missed and was one of the few people who took the same message as me from "Zen in the Art ... " below.

William Golding spoke highly of the Book of Le Page, although his views on island life were not quite so languid.
