`David Hughes's portrait rings absolutely true; reading this book is uncanny because he manages to bring Gerry so vividly back to life. . . Durrell's life was a combination of great pleasure and great desperation, and this portrait of him perfectly captures these extremes, which pull you along in their wake.
