AUTHOR: David Edelsten
Last Dorset Diaries
Last Dorset Diaries
  • Description

David Edelsten, incomparable countryman, continues his acclaimed reflections on country life in prose as lucid as it is poetic. Animals, as ever, loom large, this time – particularly – his horses Dandelion and Bluebell. Observations on the delights and harder realities of rural existence, are spiced with what he calls the bits and pieces from a lifetime’s reading and listening. “These diaries cover the best part of two years, more or less in sequence, with a date given where I have a note of it. But, every now and then, by way of diversion, I allow the odd bee to escape from under my bonnet, hoping that the buzzing won’t annoy you.”

Like its predecessors, Last Dorset Diaries will be a delight to true countrymen everywhere.

The son of a country doctor, David Edelsten was born in 1933 and educated at Clifton College and the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. Having commanded his regiment, the 13th/18th Royal Hussars (Queen Mary’s Own), he took early retirement in the rank of brigadier,“finally giving in to the tug of home”. He ran a charity for addiction sufferers, based in Taunton for a few years until writing took over. He is now a busy freelance journalist and reviewer, writing principally for The Field and Horse & Hound. Last Dorset Diaries is his third book. He is married with two sons and two step-daughters.
