An interesting memoir about the friendship between the Australian author Shirley Hazzard and the British author Graham Greene who encountered each other for four decades in the low-tourist season on Capri, the four-mile long island twenty miles southward from Naples, Italy. In the memoir, Hazzard recounts conversations, life on the island and how late twentieth century transformed the traditional character, though for Hazzard the modern prosperity and habits do not bury meaningful memories of Capri in a quieter time. This book is especially recommended for readers who enjoy Greene or who are enticed by the setting, not unlike the literary expatriates and northern Europeans who visited or lived on Capri. Besides the focus on Greene the man and on many literary writers in order to discover Greene in both written work and human personality, Hazzard beautifully pictures the dramatic settling which attracted people, including the first-century Roman emperor Tiberius who dwelt in a villa atop Monte Tiberio. According to Hazzard, several biographers served Greene well, but this memoir "Greene on Capri" is a personal account rather than one only researched.
10/10 Even better than Crichton, Cook & Palmer. The novel was absolutely wonderful. Gerritsen's writting has always kept me interested. A good page turner. I recommend this novel to any people who loves a good nail bitting mystery.
