* A fascinating biography of Lawrence Durrell's first wife, Nancy

Amateurs In Eden Zusammenfassung

Amateurs In Eden: The Story of a Bohemian Marriage: Nancy and Lawrence Durrell Joanna Hodgkin

Nancy Durrell has always been an enigma. To her husband Lawrence, 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. Growing up in a dysfunctional family, she was the 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.

Amateurs In Eden Bewertungen

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 'Frank and captivating ... rich in charm and pathos ... Hodgkin has done both Nancy and herself proud with this fresh portrait of a marriage we thought we knew, and of a woman we have never known well enough.' -- Miranda Seymour Sunday Times 'It's a cracking story, and Hodgkin ... is a meticulous researcher' -- Olivia Laing Observer 'The animating spirit that pulses through this joint biography is to be thoroughly applauded.' -- D. J. Taylor Literary Review 'An enjoyable, revisionist account of a bohemian marriage. And a smack in the face for Durrell acolytes who think the great man deserved a worthier first mate.' -- Blake Morrison Guardian
