The Golden Age is a collection of Kenneth Grahame’s reminiscences of childhood, notable for their conception of a world where children are locked in perpetual warfare with the adult “Olympians” who have wholly forgotten how it feels to be young—a theme later explored by J. M. Barrie and other authors.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“One of the few books which are well-nigh too praiseworthy for praise.” Daily Chronicle (London)
“This audiobook is a lesser-known collection of childhood reminiscences by the author of The Wind in the Willows…The work has a nostalgic tone and often makes references to Greek myths. Vance delivers a commanding performance. While the stories are intended for children, they do not come across as having been written solely for children. Vance’s narration style places them in the context of more popular British stories like those of Lewis and Tolkein.” AudioFile

Author Bio: Kenneth Grahame

Kenneth Grahame (1859–1932), Scottish-born author, was raised by his grandmother in Berkshire, England, along the banks of the Thames River. He began working at the Bank of England in 1879. As a pastime, he wrote light nonfiction and articles for newspapers. The Wind in the Willows, originally written as letters to his son, established him as a writer of children’s books and had a deep influence on fantasy literature.
