Reviews

hilarious * Independent on Sunday * Entertaining * The Lady * 'John Humphrys was born to be combative... His cellist son Christopher acts as a gentle foil. Between them they amusingly blend the genres of misery memoir and Mediterranean escapist idyll * FT Weekend * A sparky, funny, exasperated story that brings Humphrys and his family together in trying but also tender circumstances. * Iain Finlayson, Times * a profoundly instructive course in the idiosyncrasies of Greek law, custom and culture...entertainingly chronicled * Saga * hilarious * Daily Mail * a very funny tome * Daily Telegraph *
