Abstract:

"For millennia the cliffs of Capri have sheltered pleasure seekers and refugees alike, among them the emperors Augustus and Tiberius, Henry James, Rilke, Lenin, and hosts of artists, eccentrics, and outcasts. Here in the 1960s Graham Greene got to know Shirley Hazzard and her husband, the writer Francis Steegmuller; their friendship lasted until Greene's death in 1991. In Greene on Capri, Hazzard uses their ever-volatile intimacy as a prism through which to illuminate Greene's mercurial character, his work and talk, and the literary culture that long thrived on this ravishing island."--Jacket.
