About This Item

London: Faber, 1963 An Obscure Humorous Work Based On Durrell`S Employment With The British Foreign Office In The 1940S Primarily In Yugoslavia. First Edition Was In 1957, This Is A Third Printing From The 1961 Edition. Although It Appears To Be As New, The Binding Is Not Very Good, With The Book Opening Automatically At Pages 62-63. I Recently Read A Novel Set In China In Which The Young Men Had Learned English From Old British Novels, And Tended To Speak It As In, `I Say, Old Fruit, You Really Must Come For Tea One Day.` This Collection Has A Similar Tone.
