Additional Information

The Ionian Islands stand at the gateway to Greece, with Corfu its gatekeeper. For so much of its history Corfu stood as protector of the Adriatic and its Venetian rulers, but now the island has turned its gaze south towards its Greek homeland. On reaching Corfu, something happens to the light, as if some celestial switch has been flipped, changing everything… Corfu – A Notebook is a series of snapshots of places, the people and culture of those who inhabit this beguiling island and some of its neighbours in the Ionian group. More of a travelling companion than a guide, this is the fourth of Richard Clark’s books about the Greek Islands. Richard Clark is a writer, journalist and editor who has worked on an array of national newspapers and magazines in the UK. He is also the author of The Greek Islands – A Notebook, Crete – A Notebook and Rhodes – A Notebook. ‘Richard Clark writes with great authority and a deep affection for his subject matter, which comes from his long association with Greece…’ Marjory McGinn, bestselling author of ‘Things Can Only Get Feta’

Though I’ve visited Corfu a dozen times, Mr. Clark’s research and first hand encounters added more depth to what I’d been told or studied over the years.

Mr. Clark does a fine job of taking the reader with him to the Byzantine style churches, the sparkling crystal blue beaches, the many spectacular vistas draped in olive groves and cypress trees, the countryside dotted with wildflowers, and small villages with men playing cards and drinking ouzo. While doing so, he discusses the history, both mythical and well documented, along with the culture, people, Mediterranean cuisine, and the influences of those who invaded and occupied the island over the centuries. In the back of the book Mr. Clark includes phrases for “getting by in Greek”, a historical guideline, and... Read more
Richard Clark’s love of Greece is evident on every page. It is a quirky mix of history, culture and reminiscences as the author takes us with him on his journey. He really gets under the skin of Greece and recaptured some wonderful memories for me as I read it. Ideal for anyone who has ever been to Corfu or is thinking of visiting. It will definitely get you in the mood – don’t forget the ouzo.
I cannot believe that there are NO photographs in this book about Corfu ! Who cares what Clark writes as a personal memoir, tell me something that is of use to me on my trip... hotels, restaurants, side trips, cruises etc.
