The parallel memoirs of two students separated by the English Channel.
In a pithy, humorous manner, Rita recounts the most vivid experiences of her student days as an assistant at a School in Albi, Southern France. 1969/70.
Brian, meanwhile, relates his trials and tribulations over the intervening period.
This memoir takes place during 2012/13. The deliberate choice of sunny days, which accentuate the beauties of nature, combine with the intrusions of modern life to create a heady mix of observations around the Author's own little patch of paradise amid the rolling out of the seasons.
