Book review: Blue Skies & Black Olives, by John Humphrys

John Humphrys is a BBC radio and television presenter who is well knwon for his acerbic interviews with politicians on Today. His son Christopher is a professional cellist who lives in Greece and has a Greek wife. A few years ago John decided to build a house in Greece and the book, written in alternate sections by John and Christopher, describes what happened. There are plenty of quite lengthy asides, in which John talks about his earlier unsuccessful attempt to farm In Wales and Christopher narrates various encounters with Greek officialdom. [More]
