Pleasures and Landscapes
In these eight evocative and unpredictable essays, Sybille Bedford chronicles her adventures through Europe over thirty years.
She takes us on a propulsive journey - dropping us into the passenger seat as she drives to meet Martha Gellhorn in Capri, taking us across the wind-swept piazzas of Venice in winter, and tantalising our taste buds with a tour of the Bordeaux vineyards.
'Bedford's ability to recreate landscape is matched only by her appetite for mouth-watering descriptions of exotic food ... She cannot write a dull page' Financial Times
