A funny little book containing the hilarious recollections of Harry Cocque, a very old gentleman currently residing in the Piddlewell Moorhen Rest Home for the faintly bewildered (but non-violent). Set in a peculiar Dorset village in the 1930s, the short stories feature characters ranging from the mildly eccentric to the downright ludicrous, and remind us of the days of harvest festivals, thieving tinkers, steam fairs, barn dances, bizarre traditions, shooting parties, country weddings, heavy drinking and just plain idiocy. Packed with absurd mishaps and outrageous double entendres, this book may well make you laugh out loud and wish you'd been there to see it all for yourself – at a safe distance...
