The Horseman's Word
Description:
The opening pages are intoxicating, the language rich, detailed and completely absorbing so that you are immediately there with the young boy in the slightly alien environment of his holiday retreat... In his descriptions of that house in Norfolk and the bygone world of a rural community after the Second World War there is barely a paragraph that doesn't contain an arresting image, a perfect simile, something to chime with even your own childhood, however far removed it might be from the one being described... Grafitt's great skill in this memoir is to suit his writing to the experience'. --Just William's Luck, May 2011`It is a pungently beautiful piece of writing... This is no nostalgia piece: Garfitt's rich, vivid reminiscences are alive to the hardship and petty injustices of the times and inextricably entwined with his own ponderous, impassioned attempts to discover and assert his own personality.' --Metro Life, Andrzej Lukowski a `very readable memoir.' --Sunday Times Culture `He's produced a memoir that deserves to put him on the wider literary map... prose that at its best is both loving and pin-sharp... Garfitt writes beautifully about that strange mix of lust and purity to be found in adolescent male longing.' --Mail on Sunday'His survival of a fine madness makes a fine memoir.' --Saga Magazine`Those landscapes (coastal Norfolk, the semi-rural hinterlands of Surrey) are evoked with tenderness and care; the people especially Garfitt's grandparents are vividly drawn, and the attention to fine detail (the sensual feast of opening up a beach hut at the start of the season, for example) is close to Proustian. Yet this book is no idyll: hardship is recognised and given its due...The description of Hughes is both funny and poignant...Garfitt's eye for the telling detail of character, and his economy in relation them, evidence great skill and fine judgement, but it is in the second half of the book, when he recounts his descent into madness, that the full range of his narrative gift emerges...This section of the book, one of the finest first-hand accounts of madness I have read, is a superb achievement.' --Guardian `His survival of a fine madness makes a fine memoir.' --Saga Magazine `Those landscapes (coastal Norfolk, the semi-rural hinterlands of Surrey) are evoked with tenderness and care; the people especially Garfitt's grandparents are vividly drawn, and the attention to fine detail (the sensual feast of opening up a beach hut at the start of the season, for example) is close to Proustian. Yet this book is no idyll: hardship is recognised and given its due...The description of Hughes is both funny and poignant...Garfitt's eye for the telling detail of character, and his economy in relation them, evidence great skill and fine judgement, but it is in the second half of the book, when he recounts his descent into madness, that the full range of his narrative gift emerges...This section of the book, one of the finest first-hand accounts of madness I have read, is a superb achievement.' --Guardian `Roger Garfitt owes the likes of Rousseau and De Quincey a good deal. But his gentle, coaxing tour across the fervid climbs, lonely sloughs and frustrating plateaus of his early English years has a poetic delicacy of expression that neither of his progenitors could muster' --Independant`In a lyrical slice of autobiography, poet Roger Garfitt presents an impressionistic memoir of intense fervour...a richly textured and compelling self-portrait.' --Good Book Guide
