Caesar’s Vast Ghost. Aspects Of Provence By Lawrence Durrell

Minimum Donation €14.00

Provence, where Lawrence Durrell lived for over thirty years, is the motif of this highly personal and unusual book. It is not a guide for travellers, though it tells them intriguing things they will not find elsewhere. Nor is it a writer’s journal, though it preserves memories and cameos from Mr Durrell’s intimate experience of the Midi and its people
