A visit to Don Otavio by Sybille Bedford( Book )

3 editions published between 1991 and 2004 in French and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before returning to the Old World after World War II, Sybille Bedford resolved to see something more of the New. "I had a great longing to move," she said, "to hear another language, eat new food, to be in a country with a long nasty history in the past and as little present history as possible." And so she set out for Mexico - and, incidentally, to write what Bruce Chatwin called the best travel book of the twentieth century, "a book of marvels, to be read again and again and again."
