Provence, where Lawrence Durrell lived for thirty years, is the motif of
this final work, published just before his death. It is a highly personal
and unusual book, part travelogue, part writer's notebook, part
autobiography. It preserves memories from his intimate experience of the
Midi, and scattered through the evocative text are nineteen poems inspired
by the genius of the place. 'A richly characteristic bouillabaisse by our
last great garlicky master of the vanishing Mediterranean, our old Prospero
of the south; poet, travel writer, novelist and fumiste . . .' Richard
Holmes, The Times
