Description

A memoir by Joachim Sartorius

“A delightful book.” * Times Literary Supplement *
“A must-read for anyone heading to Cyprus or in need of a summery armchair getaway.” * Metro *

In the mid-1980s, Joachim Sartorius spent three idyllic years in Cyprus. As an outsider with a diplomatic passport, Sartorius was both figuratively and literally equipped to explore both sides of this ancient island that had been divided in two by civil war a decade earlier. Before long, he found himself intimately connected with its people and places.

A reflection on Sartorius’s time there, My Cyprus goes beyond history and politics to reveal deeply personal stories from its inhabitants. Yet the book’s stand-out protagonist is Cyprus itself: a paradisiacal backdrop that belies centuries of invasion and settlement, My Cyprus is an enduring portrait of an island like no other.
