DescriptionWelcome to the village of Notwithstanding, where a lady dresses in plus fours and shoots squirrels, a retired general gives up wearing clothes altogether, a spiritualist lives in a cottage with the ghost of her husband, and people think it quite natural to confide in a spider that lives in a potting shed. Based on de Bernieres' recollections of the village he grew up in, Notwithstanding is a funny and moving depiction of a charming vanished England.

Reviews for Notwithstanding
There are a few villages in darkest Devon that still have characters similar to those in this book. When we came to this parish in 1964 we found ourselves living in the remnants of an archetypal feudal system.
Notwithstanding, with all the characters represented in the book depicts the daily life and activities of a small rural community, the gentle fun and pathos together with parochial gossip with great accuracy.
An excellent little book for those indigenous rural dwellers of all ages who still live in such communities. by David
