Ronald Blythe followed up his famous Akenfield with this book. In it he allows people from all walks of life to reflect in their own words on what it is like to be old. The result is a fascinating and moving series of confidences which we are privileged to share. Whether philosophical, resigned or despairing of their long years, Ronald Blythe discovers in their talk much that helps us understand the natural but isolating effects of old age. The View in Winter provides us with a gentle, perceptive and profound memoir and a deeper understanding of the pattern of our lives.
