Childhood at Oriol

Michael Burn
  • “An enchanting story of the fairy-tale-like youth of two British children, Childhood at Oriol has been resurrected from its 1951 limited printing. The novel maintains a sense of gallant storytelling; the author's methodology is consistent with the nature of childhood—innocent yet vaguely aware, and the novel's fluid language makes ordinary events appear interesting and inviting.” —Rain Taxi

  • “A stately novel... beguiling, genteel.” —The New York Times
