The Fifth QuarterRichard Selby
The Fifth Quarter is Romney Marsh as defined by Rev. Richard Harris Barham in The Ingoldsby Legends: ‘The World, according to the best geographers is divided into Europe, Asia, Africa, America and Romney Marsh…’. It is a place apart, almost another world and this collection explores its ancient and modern landscapes, wonders at its past and reflects upon the present.
This eclectic collection of tales is funny and sad, universal and particular.
