Marvel at the antics of the actors on the rural stage including wall-repairing, fish and chips scoffing Cedric and the inimitable Arnie down on his farm. Live the minor traumas and dramas of a country-boy's student life and find out how he survived for a while in the South of England. Don't miss out on the author's Buddy Holly experience and his hilarious adventures into journalism and interviewing local celebrities. Throw in village football, croquet and the advantages and young love opportunities of mixed schooling. Reflect on social change if you will - but mainly enjoy!
