Bitter Lemons of CyprusDownloadable Audiobook - 2007
Lawrence Durrell's autobiographical story of growing tensions in Cyprus.Cyprus, 1953-1956, Lawrence Durrell, a UK ex-pat living in the country records his memoirs of a time when Turks and Greeks lived side-by-side in a beautiful and laid-back atmosphere. Written during the gradual uprising of Greek Cypriots who wanted union with Greece, Durrell's memories paint a poignant, picturesque and sad picture of the happy realities of a time that now seems hard to imagine, and draws contrasts between his images of a past society and the segregated situation of the country at present.
