Synopsis: A guide to the landscape and manners of the island of Corfu.
“One of Lawrence Durrell’s best books – indeed, in its gem-like miniature quality, among the best books ever written.” – Freya Stark
“This charming idyll depicts the country life and cosmopolitan society of Corfu in the years immediately before the war . . . The matter of it is as sound as the story is delightful.” – Sunday Times
“Corfu, that Ionian island whose idyllic yet blood-stained history goes back the best part of a thousand years, could not have found a fitter chronicler than Mr Durrell. For he is a poet, with all a poet’s sensibility, and a humanist to boot, with a keen eye for character and a scholar’s reverence for antiquity.” – Daily Telegraph
