Why we love this
The Darling Buds of May by H. E. Bates. Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1958. First printing. A classic of comic country life, the adventures of the Larkin family have been delighting British readers for years. This first installment defines their gypsy charms and semi-legal schemes for having a good time at the expense of their more respectable neighbors. Jacket has fading, otherwise a very good copy.
