"Lawrence Durrell's autobiographical story of growing tensions in Cyprus. Cyprus, 1953-1956, Lawrence Durrell, a UK ex-pat living in the country records his memoirs of a time when Turks and Greeks lived side-by-side in a beautiful and laid-back atmosphere. Written during the gradual uprising of Greek Cypriots who wanted union with Greece, Durrell's memories paint a poignant, picturesque and sad picture of the happy realities of a time that now seems hard to imagine, and draws contrasts between his images of a past society and the segregated situation of the country at present"--Publisher's description

With the Second World War over, a weary Durrell seeks peace on an ancient isle Islomania is a disease not yet classified by Western science, but to those afflicted its symptoms are all too recognizable. Men like Lawrence Durrell are struck by a powerful need to live on the ancient islands of the Mediterranean, where the clear blue Aegean is always within reach. After four tortuous wartime years in Egypt, Durrell finds a post on the island of Rhodes, where the British are attempting to return Greece to the sleepy peace it enjoyed in the '30s. From his first morning, when a dip in the frigid sea jolts him awake for what feels like the first time in years, Durrell breathes in the fullest joys of island life, meeting villagers, eating exotic food, and throwing back endless bottles of ouzo, as though the war had never happened at all. The charms of his stay there still resonate today, for the pleasures of Greece are older than history itself
