'Peter Maughan, author of the acclaimed Batch Magna Chronicle novels (published by Farrago as paperbacks and ebooks) approached me to see whether I would be interested in a short non-fiction text which has only previously been available in e-format. Under the Apple Boughs is 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.
