And the land stretched out before me, and the years fell away,
And I was a boy again,
And the friends of my youth were there beside me,
And nothing had changed.

Told in Ruskin Bonds simple yet poignant style, the stories and poems in No Man Is an Island thoughtfully explore the many shades of friendship and camaraderie. Featuring classic tales such as The Woman on Platform No. 8, in which a mysterious stranger befriends a young boy, and The Crooked Tree, in which a writer and a hawker form an unlikely bond, this heart-warming collection is a must-read.
