The Cumbrian Trilogy Summary


The Cumbrian Trilogy by Melvyn Bragg

Melvyn Bragg's celebrated trilogy - THE HIRED MAN, A PLACE IN ENGLAND and KINGDOM COME - traces four generations of Tallentire history: from John in the rural Cumbria of 1898 to Douglas in the competitive and backbiting metropolis of the Seventies. From 'hired man' to media man worlds have been bridged, but the old ideals of success, freedom and happiness seem ever elusive as each Tallentire must come to terms with private uncertainty and pain.

'An uncommonly high talent. The people are "real" enough to leave footprints right across the page' Guardian
