    Return to Corfu is the most interesting story where I could imagine the Durrell’s Corfu Year’s without reading

    This book starts as a collection of letters from different periods of Lawrence’s life when he lived in Crete pre war and southern France post war I was supposed to read this book prior to going on holiday in lancdoc on the canal de Midi The language of the writing made you reach for the dictionary and I think I have looked up and possible learned words reading this than any other book for a long time Durrell was a cosmopolitan wonder who travelled and wrote about his experience He seemed to get very close to the people who he lived among and was welcomed into families and communities Perhaps one of the earliest Francophiles Even from this collection of letters and writing you can really appreciate the poetic uality of his writing Make me want to delve deeper into his works and other “highbrow” writing Perhaps it could act as an opening back into poetry as he was close to TSElliot Perhaps one of the most memorable phrase was the when night undresses all the trees

    It was as though Mr Durrell was living my life right now Just exchange one place for another one nationality or maybe 2 in his case and you have it Life in the Foreign Service This is a man who truly enjoyed wherever he landed mostly and writes well about Greece and about France I really enjoyed it
