'...in that enchanted place on the top of the Forest a little boy and his Bear will always be playing.' The House at Pooh Corner. As an adult, Christopher Milne made every attempt to escape his father's fantasy world of Christopher Robin and Pooh. Despite a happy childhood in Sussex and London in the 1920s and 30s, as a young man he began to look on it as a burden. After experiencing what he describes as 'the Adventure' and 'the Horror' of World War 2, Milne still found it difficult to take the 'less trodden road' and find his own way. Eventually, in his later years, he turned his attention to contemplating the wasteful exploitation of the environment and produced a provocative treatise on humankind's duty to the natural world. Compiled by A.R. Melrose - editor of THE POOH BEDSIDE READER - from the four highly acclaimed volumes of Milne's autobiography, this is the extraordinarily candid and compelling self-portrait of a shy, unassuming man who, despite worldwide childhood fame, sought only a life of quiet anonymity beyond the world of Pooh.
