Inhaltsangabe: It's the May Day holiday, and a fair has come to the village of Thrush Green. The residents of Thrush Green all have their own views about the fair. For young Paul, just recovered from an illness, it is a joy to be allowed out to play at the fair; for Ruth, who returned to the soothing tranquillity of Thrush Green nursing a broken heart, the fair is a welcome distraction from her own problems. And for Dr Lovell, the fair brings an unexpected new patient. Then there is Mrs Curdle, the long-standing matriarch of the fair. For her, this year's visit to Thrush Green awakens mixed feelings, and a difficulty she doesn't want to face...
Über den Autor: Miss Read, or in real life Dora Saint, was born 17 April 1913. A teacher by profession, she started writing after the Second World War for Punch and other journals and as a scriptwriter for the BBC. She is the author of many immensely popular books, including two autobiographical works, but it is for her novels of English rural life for which she is best known. The first of these, Village School, was published in 1955 and Miss Read continued to write about the fictitious villages of Fairacre and Thrush Green until her retirement in 1996. She lives in Berkshire, and in the 1998 New Year Honours list was awarded an MBE for her services to literature. Two-time winner of the Best Actress Olivier for her stage roles in HECUBA and VINCENT IN BRIXTON, Clare Higgins has had roles in films such as THE LIBERTINE and STAGE BEAUTY and has performed with companies and theatres from the Royal Shakespeare Company to the Royal National Theatre to the Golden Theatre in New York. She has the role of Ma Costa in the upcoming film of Phillip Pullman's HIS DARK MATERIALS.
