Inscribed by the author on the half-title: "for Jamie, with love Laurie, Nov. 59". Jamie was the Hamish Hamilton head-honcho. Lee's memoir of his supremely happy, simple Gloucestershire childhood with his mother and six siblings was two years in the writing, and was an extraordinary success, the paperback edition selling over a million copies. The first impression, mentioning the piano works on page 272.
