Jilly Cooper has kept a diary about life on Putney Common. Noting the effects of the changing seasons and writing about her encounters with dogs and humans, Cooper creates an affectionate and enthralling portrait of her everyday life.
Cooper writes lyrically about the natural world, tellingly about the sorrows and joys of caring for dogs and children and outrageously about the gossip, illicit romances and jealousies of small community life.

A love letter to the common
I really enjoyed listening to The Common Years, it is part nature journal, part diary and very honest. The common was easy to listen to although surprisingly heartbreaking in places. Imogen Church did a fantastic job with the narration and really brought everyone to life.

This is a favourite book and love reading/hearing it on a regular basis. I was though very disappointed with the narration- just didn’t work for me at all.
