Overview

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.
