Dorothy Carrington, "Granite Island: A Portrait of Corsica"
ISBN: 0141442271 | 2008 | EPUB | 384 pages | 4 MB
'Get away from here before you're completely bewitched and enslaved…' Dorothy Carrington was told, while sitting in a fisherman's cafe at the magically quiet midday hour. But enslaved she was. GRANITE ISLAND, much more than a travel book, grew out of years spent in Corsica and is an incomparably vivid and delightful portrait. For the first time Corsica is brought to light as a vital element in Europe: a highly individualistic island culture whose people have nurtured their love of freedom and political justice, as well as their pride, hospitality and poetry.
