Durrell was an expatriate British novelist and writer who spent much of his life beside the Mediterranean, this is his only extended piece of writing on Italy. Based on a slightly fictionalized bus tour of the island of Sicily. Reprint of 1977 first edition.
Peter Levi writing in The Sunday Times said of Durrell 'He writes as a poet and a sage, and he can write most of our contemporaries into a cocked hat.... No one else can so intermingle landscapes and atmospheres with human curiosity and the serious discussion of deep and endless questions'.
