Product description

Review

'One of the most entertaining literary characters of his age, always unexpected. He lived and died an unpenitent nonconformist.' --The Evening Standard

'Douglas is an excellent writer of works of travel: he has the necessary independence of mind, his loneliness, the face that gives nothing away. Old Calabria is a classic. His eye wanders from the road into the generalities of history and religion...but he never misses the precise contours of the country.' --The New Statesman

'Almost everything a newcomer can require is here: Douglas turns easily from legend to natural history, natural history to notes on local wine..;' --Graham Greene, on Footnote on Capri, Sunday Times

From the Publisher

“If there is a better book of travel in English, I do not know it” Professor R.M.Dawkins. With an introduction by Jonathan Keates.
