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--
