Reader's note

In Greece one has the conviction that ‘genius’ is the norm, not mediocrity. No country has produced in proportion to its numbers as many geniuses as Greece. In one century alone this tiny nation gave to the world almost 500 men of genius, and the landscape remains the most satisfactory, the most wondrous, that our earth has to offer.’ so writes Henry Miller. He went to Greece - the year the war was breaking over Europe - to give himself a long holiday. This vintage pink Penguin book will add a pop of colour to any bookshelf.
