Краткое описание

Amateurs in Eden: The Story of a Bohemian Marriage: Nancy and Lawrence Durrell.

Nancy Durrell has long been overshadowed. To her husband Lawrence, the future author of the Alexandria Quartet, she was his introduction to bohemian London, his companion during his formative years, and the inspiration for some of his finest poetry. Here at last is Nancy's story, told by her daughter, herself an accomplished novelist. Growing up in a dysfunctional family, Nancy was a provincial schoolgirl who was transformed overnight into a young woman of haunting beauty. From the smoky pubs of 1930s Fitzrovia to the sexual mayhem of the Villa Seurat in Paris, and a remote village in pre-war Corfu, her story shines new light on an extraordinary group of people."This is not just a memoir of her mother. This is the history of a literary wife. On both counts, Hodgkin succeeds beautifully.... [Nancy's] story is not a footnote; it is absolutely central."—Independent (London)"Nancy, as beautiful as Garbo, and as reticent, can finally take her place as a significant, if sad, figure in a story more troubling and authentic than any from the Alexandria Quartet."—Sunday Times (London)
