Going, Going-Gone Greek
This is an odyssey in quest of Greece - a journey embarked upon in 1940 and continuing to this day It involves, inter alai, a protracted house-hunt throughout the Aegean. By describing his introduction to the Hellenic world and his subsequent intercourse with the Greeks in their own country, in the United Kingdom, the Middle East and Africa, the author seeks to identify, obliquely rather than directly, and not always PC-wise, some of the facets of that world which attract him and offer a spiritual (and spirituous!) satisfaction that he largely failed to discover in the West. The original motive power for this journey was an interest in Ancient Greece and its people, but this was soon superseded to a great extent by an enthusiasm for the Neo-Hellenes and, especially, their country.
