9780099570257: Journey Into Cyprus

The people, their history and the beauty of an island on the brink of tragedy.

This is the account of a unique journey - a six-hundred-mile trek on foot around Cyprus in the last year of the island's peace. Colin Thubron intertwines myth, history and personal anecdote in a quest from which the characters and places, architecture and landscape all spring vividly to the reader's eye.

Review:

"Thubron writes very well indeed... He carries with him the talisman of erudition combined with intuition" ( Sunday Times)

"Thubron knows the real Cypriots... He evinces a never unsympathetic observation and a respect for the incongruous that put him in the category of Kinglake and Edward Lear" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Purchased by blistered and bleeding feet, this picture is extraordinarily detailed and vivid... An accomplished linguist and historian, his passionate concern for antiquity in all its aspects - mythological, architectural, conceptual - lends weight and warmth to every chapter" ( Financial Times)

"Colin Thubron is in a class of his own" ( Scotsman)

"Most memorable and full of insight" ( Lawrence Durrell)

Book Description:

'He is the most admirable of guides, deeply versed in the rich history and archaeology of the island, delighting in the legends' - Sunday Telegraph
