Greene on Capri : a memoir by Shirley Hazzard( Book )
9 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 33 libraries worldwide
"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

Caroline and Grace Bell, two beautiful orphan sisters eager to begin their lives in a new land, journey to England from Australia. What happens to these young women - seduction and abandonment, marriage and widowhood, love and betrayal - becomes as moving and wonderful and yet as predestined as the transits of the planets themselves. The Transit of Venus is a story of place: Sydney, London, New York, Stockholm; of time: from the fifties to the eighties; and above all, of women and men in their passage through the displacements and absurdities of modern life
