Présentation de l'éditeur

Nat Hearn came back from the War to be assistan editor and can carrier in chief of the Sandcome Clarion. R.F. Delderfield takes the lid off small town life with a relish born of experience and reveals the politicking and doubtful but only too human motives that swirl round and through the sieve of a small local paper.

Biographie de l'auteur

R. F. Delderfield was born in South London in 1912. On leaving school he joined the Exmouth Chronicle newspaper as a junior reporter, where he went on to become Editor. From there he began to write stage plays and then became a highly successful novelist, renowned for brilliantly portraying slices of English life. With the publication of his first saga, A HORSEMAN RIDING BY, he became one of Britain's most popular authors. Many of his bestselling novels were later adapted for television. He died in 1972.

This is the first book I've read by R.E. Delderfield, whose later works enjoyed popularity around 35 years ago. I can hardly put the book down. I saw the movie first and was interested enough to order the book. This book is a top example of English country fiction from the post-WWII era.

Like most of R.F. Delderfield's books, All Over The Town follows the transformation of a young man as he emerges into a post-war world where he looks for a better life. What I find so gratifying about Delderfield's books, as in this one, is that the hero knows that the war he's gone through means he was fighting for the promise a world that offers him a chance to affect his life and his community for good. And he's not willing to give up on the promise without at least make it come true.

Plus Delderfield's books are a social commentary on English society for the period in which they are set. In this case, the period is post-World War II England, an era that is often overlooked. That alone makes it worth picking up.

The hero, Nathaniel Hearn, wanders aimlessly back to the seaside town where he worked as a reporter on a weekly newspaper, doing work he humorously despised but at least it kept him in pocket money. Now he's fought a war and must decide if he'll be satisfied with the same life and job he had before or if there's a chance for more. The woman who took over his job while he was gone, romantically wakes him up to the possibility of a fuller life and to the possibility that there is more - that he can remake his job, the newspaper and the small town into something good in this world that is trying to recover from bombs and rationing and depression.

When he has he chance to take over the newspaper and start clearing away the deadwood in the town's society and exposing a shameful housing scheme, Nat comes alive with passion. His philosophy of "believing in people" means that someone, and why should it be him, should try to make the town better, using common sense and kindness. And if everyone concentrated on doing the same to his or her own little corner of the world, then pretty soon the whole country could regain its dignity and culture and comfort, which the war had put on hold for 6 long years.

This is one of those quiet books that reaffirms the belief that everyone has a power for good. Plus its a book that any true Anglophile will want because it speaks of England.

Enjoyed the storyline, but the will he won't he keeping us guessing was a little unsettling.
Loved all of RF Delderfielod's books

I love reading about what life was like in England, and I always find some jewels of wisdom in books. I don't always take the time to create a computer file, but I would like to do so more often. More and more the margins of my books have arrows so that I will pay close attention to what was written there. Sometimes I just don't have the memory or the time to create a computer file so that I can find a given quote. I'm looking forward to some sort of system--like highlighting and being able to transfer the highlighted material to a computer file. One of these days I'm going to have something like a kindle, but I want to be able to transfer the highlighted material to my computer.
