While Cyprus is often touted as a tourist destination, the origins of the prolonged war between the island's Greek and Turkish communities are less well known. In Bitter Lemons of Cyprus - first published as Bitter Lemons in 1957 - Lawrence Durrell blends the story of beginning a new life in this beautiful place with an account of the conflict's beginnings. It is a narrative that retains political relevance today. Durrell is a hard-up writer looking for Mediterranean peace and a stunning old house - and Cyprus nobly obliges. But as well as writing about events and eccentric neighbours with zest and great wit, he slowly gets drawn into the unfolding tragedy of Cyprus's battle for self-determination.
