    One thought on “The Common Years”

    1. Jilly is at her best when waxing lyrical about nature. This is an autobiographical read about the ten years she spent as a dog walking resident of Putney. It lacks the racy nature of her novels but is a delicious read and I loved it!You will love reading about Putney and Richmond parks as her prose takes you through summer heatwaves to a frosty snow covered common. I also loved all the poetry that is scattered through the text.

    2. jilly cooper's account of the decade she spent living in a house near putney common, of the people she met there, and the problems with her various dogs. While i generally find jilly Cooper quite amusing, and started off enjoying this, I found myself increasingly irritated by her hopelessness about her dogs.

    3. Charming, punning and gossipy, this book deals with the ups and downs of life with boisterous dogs, as well as life in a small community (in this case the dog-walking denizens of Putney). This is the second time I have read this book, the first when I myself have dogs and the bonding effect of having a dog is well captured in this book, as is the fact that walking a dog does give you time to contemplate the world around you. This is a well observed and well written slice of Iife.

    4. Jilly Cooper is UK's Jackie Collins, but this is a nice diary of her life on the Commons in the country in the UK
