Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bitter Lemons of Cyprus "is not a political book but simply a somewhat impressionistic study of the moods and atmospheres of Cyprus during the troubled years 1953-56." So wrote Lawrence Durrell in the preface to this longtime bestseller. Durrell brilliantly captures the romance, beauty, excitement, and sadness of the island, as well as the lives of the people of Bellapaix. Writing with great affection and lyrical style, Durrell charts the relationships of the inhabitants and the gradual uprising of the Greek Cypriots, who wanted union with Greece. Andrew Sachs inhabits the voices of both Turkish and Greek Cypriots with authenticity and compassion.

Synopsis:

The romance of the characters living in Bellapaix where Durrell bought a house, the beauty of the mountain ranges, the excitement of the slow but gradual uprising of the Greek Cypriots who wanted union with Greece (Enosis), and the sadness that the situation could not be resolved peacefully... a situation that 40 years later is still far from being settled. For those of you who like a travel book with that special something extra and enjoy listening to Andrew Sachs bringing to life Durrell's old friends and further enhancing his wonderful narrative.
