The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop

All around the year

A diary following a year at Parsonage Farm, a mixed farm in Devon, close to Dartmoor. The book documented a way of life unchanged for centuries, but which was already remote to most people. Morpurgo reveals the daily hardships and rewards of such a life. Ted Hughes, Morpurgo’s near neighbour and friend, wrote a poem for each month of the year in this unique collaboration. The book is illustrated with the photographs of James Ravilious from the Beaford Archive. It has a new introduction by the prize-winning author Katherine Rundell, and is published for Michael Morpurgo’s eightieth birthday.
