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
