Description

___________
‘So glittering is the overall parade – and so entertaining the surface – that the trilogy remains excitingly vivid; it amuses, it diverts and it informs, and to do these things so elegantly is no small achievement’ – Sunday Times

‘One of the finest fictional productions that Britain has seen since the war’ – Anthony Burgess

Living and working in Rumania, Guy and Harriet Pringle are forced to evacuate to Greece before the steady advance of the German army. The Balkan Trilogy is the remarkable portrait of their marriage, a haunting evocation of a vanished way of life and a delightfully ironic comedy of manners in a breaking world.

Publisher Review

One of the finest fictional productions that Britain has seen since the war * Anthony Burgess * So glittering is the overall parade- and so entertaining the surface that the trilogy remains excitingly vivid; it amuses, it diverts and it informs, and to do these things so elegantly is no small achievement * Sunday Times *
