Book of the Week, Three Houses Episode 4 of 5

A beautifully nostalgic childhood memoir of Britain in the late 1890s, written by the eminent author Angela Thirkell.
She recalls in rich detail, and with a delightful sense of humour, the three houses which were seminal to her youth.

At her grandfather's house in Rottingdean, the author listens to her cousin's latest stories. The cousin is Rudyard Kipling and the tales are later published as The Just So Stories.
