Movement between countries, and also into the countryside, is central to Vron Ware's essay, a personal account mediated to some extent by other people's stories. Her focus is the village in Southern England in which she was born, and the transformations it has undergone over half a century. The central concern in this return to place is to try to ascertain how one's sense of self also changes, and – crucially – how one can write about this. Throughout, she explores the idea of the ‘end of an era’ and the assumption that a ‘way of life’ is over in this village and others like it, focusing on changes in the poultry industry and the discourses surrounding it.
