Publishers Description: The reissue in Vintage Classics marks the 20th anniversary of first publication. At the heart of this novel lies the fictional village of Ulverton. It is the fixed point in a book that spans three hundred years. Different voices tell the story of Ulverton: one of Cromwells soldiers staggers home to find his wife remarried and promptly disappears, an eighteenth century farmer carries on an affair with a maid under his wifes nose, a mother writes letters to her imprisoned son, a 1980s real estate company discover a soldiers skeleton, dated to the time of Cromwell. Told through diaries, sermons, letters, drunken pub conversations and film scripts this is a masterful novel that reconstructs the unrecorded history of England.
