AUTHOR: Norma Huxtable
Positively the Last Word on Exmoor
Positively the Last Word on Exmoor
  • Description

For ten years, Norma Huxtable – farmer, landlady, writer, wit and all-round exposer of the social scene that makes Exmoor such a unique place to live – delighted readers of Exmoor – The Country Magazine with her regular ‘Last Word’ column. Now, by popular demand, the pieces are collected together once more in book form.

Rejoice again at the antics of Farmer Fred, the genteel aspirations of Missus (whose Christmas present one year was the gloves that came free with a bag of rat poison), the incredulity of the ‘newcomers’ and the generally superior attitude of the assorted livestock.

Discover anew the centrality of Exmoor to world affairs – or, as one worthy succinctly phrased it, ‘If it ain’t happening up Hawkridge then I ain’t concerned’. Above all, learn once more how to speak, act and dress Exmoor, a place where a fashion statement is the colour of the baler twine you use to hitch up your trousers. ‘But’, as Norma says, ‘what the heck – this is Exmoor, not Vogue magazine.’

Norma Huxtable is a farmer’s wife who established a successful second successful business as a summer landlady, and thereafter has delighted thousands through her witty talks, radio appearances and books of her hilarious experiences.

This book follows The Last Word on Exmoor and brings the reader further hilarious exploits reaching into the true heart of Exmoor with piercing observation and dry wit.
