Reflections on a Marine Venus

World War II is finally over, and after four tortuous years serving the Crown in Egypt, Lawerence Durrell seeks peace in the landscapes he has loved since growing up in Corfu: ancient Mediterranean islands. He is posted to Rhodes, and from his first dip in the dazzling blue Aegean - which jolts his soul awake for the first time in years - he immerses himself in the rhythms and moods of local life, befriending eccentric villagers and quaffing ouzo as through the war was a distant dream. With his poet's eye and passion for excavating local history, Durrell recaptures the mythic Rhodes of legend, of knights and crusades, that lies beneath its war-ravaged surface. Rich in character, wit, and insight, it is a Mediterranean journey that will stay with you forever.
