Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Mr Delderfield's manner is easy, modest, heartwarming (Evening Standard)

R F Delderfield is a born storyteller ( Sunday Mirror)

Sheer, wonderful storytelling (Chicago Tribune)

It is always a pleasure to read R F Delderfield, because he never seems to be ashamed of writing well (Books and Bookmen)

'He built an imposing artistic social history that promises to join those of his great forebears in the long, noble line of the English novel. His narratives belong in a tradition that goes back to John Galsworthy and Arnold Bennett' Life Magazine (Life Magazine)

Présentation de l'éditeur

It happened on the second day of the summer term. Was it caused by the smell of lilac, the droning of the bees, or the French incense which Lane-Perkins had set alight? Nobody knew, but that spring afternoon following a heated exchange with a pupil, Sebastian Sermon, a forty-nine-year-old schoolmaster, experiences a brainstorm. Dissatisfied with his life, he leaves his job, wife and children, and takes to the road. In the months that follow, Sebastian discovers that excitement and romance are not only for the young. He does things he has never done before and finds that he has talents which no one, least of all himself, had ever suspected . . .

Sebastian Sermon is a school teacher. He has been conscious for a while of a sense of dissatisfaction with his life. One day a boy in his class misbehaves and Mr Sermon snaps and hits him - and goes on hitting him. He walks out of the school, goes home, and decides, after scaring Sybil, his wife of twenty years, that he will go away for a time. He sets out with a small amount of money in his pocket and a rucksack on his back and ends up in Devon.

What follows is a heart warming and interesting story of the way Mr Sermon finds hidden talents in himself that he never really suspected. The characters he meets are well drawn and the incidents he gets involved in are amusing and believable. I particularly liked Tapper - the antique dealer - who doesn't like dishonest dealing; the irascible town clerk who sees a man he can deal with in Mr Sermon; Olga - who is on the verge of transforming her life and Fred Gray and his daughter Rachel.

The characters are far from being all sweetness and light and this is not Arcadia. Many of the attitudes expressed and the principles upheld may seem old fashioned to modern readers but perhaps we need to go back and re-examine some of these ways of behaviour in the twenty first century. Relationships are shown as being many shades of grey with imperfect people doing the best they can to make things work.

I first read this book in the early nineteen eighties and have read it many times since then. In spite of the unpromising and very un-PC beginning I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a feel-good read which has a message of hope for everyone who has ever felt that same sense of dis-satisfaction in their lives. The book is well written and entertaining and if you enjoyed The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry: A Novel then you will probably enjoy 'The Spring Madness of Mr Sermon'.

I found it refreshing and admired the way he went about changing his circumstances without losing the good things from his past.
