In Sicily, a travel writer honors the memory of a departed friend Despite decades spent writing poetic evocations of the timeless pleasures of life in the Mediterranean, Lawrence Durrell had never set foot on the sea & rsquo;s largest island: mysterious, impenetrable Sicily.

With Martine & rsquo;s letters in his pocket, Durrell signs up for a tour group, hoping to learn the travel habits of those who aren & rsquo;t obsessively devoted to island life.
