As the world around it marches forward, the bucolic English village of Notwithstanding remains unchanged. It is, as it always has been, a place of pubs and cricket pitches, where local eccentrics--a retired colonel who has eschewed clothes, a spiritualist living with the ghost of her husband, and a dog named Archibald Scott-Moncrieff--almost fit in. In this delightfully evocative collection of stories, Louis de Bernières conjures up a rural idyll long since forgotten.
