This is an auction for THE GREEK ISLANDS by Lawrence Durrell.

Amazon.com reviews:

"As every reader of Durrell knows, his writing is steeped in the living experience of the Mediterranean, and especially the islands of Greece. This captivating and highly unusual text weaves together evocative descriptions, history and myth with Durrell's personal reminiscences. No traveller to Greece or admirer of the genius of Durrell should miss it."

"If you need a good guide to Greece, Laurence Durrell is your guide. Eloquent, witty and full of stories that will make you to want to head to the Greek Isles."

"An engaging read with perspectives on the Greek Islands from a writer/sailor point of view is a travel guide I'd take along if I were lucky enough to be setting out on a tour of the Greek Islands."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Lawrence Durrell's first collection of poems was published in 1943, followed by the three Island books: Prospero's Cell, Reflections on a Marine Venus, about Rhodes, and Bitter Lemons, his account of life in Cyprus. Durrell's wartime sojourn in Egypt led to his masterpiece, The Alexandria Quartet, which he completed in southern France where he settled permanently in 1957. Between the Quartet and The Avignon Quintet he wrote the two-decker Tunc and Nunquam. His oeuvre includes plays, a book of criticism, translations, travel writing, and humorous stories about the diplomatic corps.
