'In its gem-like miniature quality, among the best books ever written.' New York Times Before Lawrence Durrell became a celebrated writer and poet, he spent four youthful years on the idyllic island jewel of Corfu, fascinated by the natural beauty and blood-stained ancient history within its rocky shores. While his brother Gerald collected animals as a budding naturalist - later fictionalised in My Family and Other Animals and filmed as The Durrells In Corfu - Lawrence fished, drank, and befriended the villagers. After World War II catapulted him back into a turmoiled world, Durrell never forgot the wonders of Corfu: and Prospero's Cell is his magical evocation of the blazing Aegean landscape and local people that changed him forever. '[Corfu] could not have found a fitter chronicler.' Daily Telegraph 'Charming ... Delightful.' Sunday Times
