Enjoy our celebration of another ‘bestellar’, Lawrence Durrell’s sun-washed memoir of two joyous years spent on the island of Rhodes after the Second World War.  A prose-poem to light and landscape, it also introduces us to some wonderful human beings.

See here for the full text, complete with dazzling illustrated quotations.
