Review

'This memoir will have you dreaming of idyllic beaches.' (Closer Magazine / July)

'The Greek for Love is a voluptuous, sensual dive into Corfu - food, drink, the appeal of exile, and the story of a ripening love affair. There is a strand of melancholy within this memoir, as there must be in writing that rings so resoundingly true. But this book leaves one, in the end, grinning like an idiot and envious of the descriptive skills of its author. A lovely book, and the finest sort of travel writing.' (Kevin Patterson, author of COUNTRY OF COLD)

'James Chatto is a master storyteller . . . He navigates the subject of his own life with wit, grace and enough frankness to soften the heart of any sceptic . . . In Chatto we have a tour guide of inimitable perception and style. As with the food he so warmly describes throughout the book, we cannot help but devour his carefully constructed offering.' (Toronto Star)

'A searing journal of grief and healing . . . a return journey to numbingly terrible events that began in love and ended in love.' (Toronto Globe and Mail)

'Engrossing . . . Combines sensual detail with an engaging, down-to-earth account . . . For anyone who's fantasized about running off to live on a Greek isle or any other idyllic spot abroad, this is a lovely way to do it vicariously.' (Maclean's (Canada))

'Chatto has a keen awareness of the sensual . . . Chatto's prose exults in the sensory overload of life in Loutses . . . there is an optimistic sense of growth and regeneration' (Quill & Quire)

'Inspiring' (Greece magazine)

'This memoir will have you dreaming of idyllic beaches' (Closer Magazine)

'Despite the tragedy, this is an optimistic book, the narrative skipping between past and present, and Chatto writing unsentimentally and lyrically about both Corfu and his relationship with his family' (Clover Stroud, Good Book Guide)

'This sensual love story about two young people and Corfu, which became their home, is my book of the year . . . It is a book that will touch the hearts of all who read it' (Daily Mail 'Books for Christmas', Christopher Matthew)

Book Description

Part memoir, part love story, part wildly scenic travel piece, The Greek for Love is every bit as sumptuous as its setting
