Kipras rūgtie citroni (Bitter Lemons of Cyprus)
Lawrence Durrell

“Durrell possesses exceptional qualifications. He speaks Greek fluently, he has a wide knowledge of modern Greek history, politics and literature; he has lived in continental Greece and has spent many years in other Greek islands… His account of this calamity is revelatory, moving and restrained. It is written in the sensitive and muscular prose of which he is so consummate a master.” Harold Nicolson, Observer

“This is not a political book, but simply a somewhat impressionistic study of the moods and atmospheres of Cyprus during the troubled years 1953-6,” remarks the author in Preface to the book. Lawrence Durrell is Gerald Durrell’s brother, known to Latvian readers as Larry from G. Durrell’s books about Corfu.
