Colossus of Maroussi by Henry Miller

Book Description

I felt the war coming on - it was getting closer and closer every day. For a little while yet there would be peace and men might still behave like human beings. A memoir of a Greek holiday the great American novelist Henry Miller took immediately before World War 2. Miller's beautiful and passionate prose perfectly captures the splendour and magic of the country, concentrating not only on the landscape but also the people. His classic narrative is peppered with fabulous portraits of poets and artists, including friend Lawrence Durrell. 'Read it, fall in love with Greece - then with the book in your luggage, visit the country and experience the power of truly great travel writing.' - Bruce Elder, Sydney Morning Herald
