A Child in the Sun
Dalton's childhood in Malaya obviously made quite an impression on him because as an adult, the books he was best known for were children's' stories based in the country. This partial autobiography confirms his nostalgia for the period in that it concentrates on his childhood in the country which only lasted between the ages of eight and thirteen. In order to fill it out he has added other childhood reminiscences from not only expatriate children of the time. Good Hardback. First Edition 285 pages with 9 black and white plates.
