Authors should leave home at a tender age in order to know the pleasure of going back and discovering their birthright. Bates reflects on his changing attitudes towards his native home: the drab architecture of midlands industrial towns and the confining social world of booze and church, but also natural beauty that remains untouched and equal to the Cotswolds. In Men Only (November, 1941, p. 57-61).
