The author, Marie Aspiotis was born into a wealthy family who lived in a suburb of the old town of Corfu. Marie was a Corfiote writer, playwright, poet, magazine publisher and cultural figure who influenced the literary and cultural life of post-war Corfu, a Greek island in the Ionian Sea. In 1930, the author published this work in French in cooperation with French writer René Puraux. (the preface is in both French and English). Lawrence Durrell (a close friend of the author) states, "She is, I think, the first Greek friend I made and as a girl in her twenties she wrote a book about Corfu in French which was the first study of the island to fall into my hands. Indeed her knowledge is as comprehensive as her scholarship is scrupulous and unobtrusive.". (Inventory #: 7864)
