Lawrence Larry Durrell was Public Relations Officer for the British Government on the island colony of Cyprus. As a reporter I knew him well. In Bitter Lemons Larry narrates his personal observations of a way of life rapidly disappearing, the Colonial Empire. Colorful cottages, crusader castles, Byzantine abbeys, picnics with ouzo and commanderia under the olive trees, and the characters - British, Greek and Turkish Cypriots with their sometimes lovable, sometimes negative peculiarities, but very human idiosyncracies. Winner of the Duff Cooper Memorial Prize, it is a document at once personal, poetic and subtly political - a masterly combination of travelogue, memoir and treatise.

Sue Arnold on Bitter Lemons of Cyprus A Piano in the Pyrenees. There is. It's called Bellapaix, and he describes it so temptingly you forget about places like Ayia Napa and long to up sticks and move there. These are years of rebellion when the Greek Cypriots want union with Greece, and inevitably Durrell gets involved. But it's less the politics than the atmosphere of village life that you remember. Everyday chores assume epic importance. The great gates. What have you come to Bellapaix for demands Durrell's neighbour in the mountaintop Cypriot village. To learn to drink, replies the writer, to his questioner's huge delight. No stranger to Greece by the time he moves to Cyprus in 1953, Durrell needs all his diplomatic skills as his new drinking companions become embroiled in the anti-British resistance movement. Durrell takes you there on his journey through Cyprus and his engaging tales and experiences. He reveals what makes the people of Cyprus both lovable and sometimes frustrating. You can view it as a wonderful travelogue of a time in Cyprus' history through the eyes of a brilliant writer. Verified purchase: Yes Condition: New
