Peter Maughan, author of the acclaimed Batch Magna Chronicle novels (published by Farrago as paperbacks and ebooks) was approached to see whether he would be interested in a short non-fiction text, and thus Under the Apple Boughs came to be. An enchanting description – half Laurie Lee, half Dylan Thomas – through a year in an unnamed village close to where Dorset, Somerset and Devon meet, spent when the author was somewhat younger than he is now. He had met, he says, the last of village England. Evocative and beautifully written.
