Abstract:

"With her unique ability to capture natural everyday things, Alice Taylor brings us into the world of her own parish: a world of church fund-raising, of Tidy Towns, of local magazines. This world, although dedicated to the common good, is not without its conflicts, and with great humour and understanding she tells it as it is, introducing us to the vagaries of life in a small community. In a series of vignettes of life in her own village, Alice Taylor reasserts the priorities of public space and social community. The Parish evokes and explores the positive values of community, values that could be renewed and reinvigorated in a present and future that achieves harmony between relative affluence and the pressing need to respect the environment."--Publisher description.
