His new edition of Richard Clark’s Crete – A Notebook is an updated version of his bestselling book, taking in any necessary changes since it first came out in 2012.
In 1982, on a whim, the English journalist Richard Clark upped sticks and left the country of his birth to go and work as a teacher in Crete. So began a love affair with the island to which he still returns as often as possible.
Crete – A Notebook is a series of snapshots of his experiences on an island he has grown to cherish. It is less of a travel guide and more of a travelling companion. Whether a regular visitor or a first-time traveller there, this book provides an invaluable insight into life past and present on this exquisite island.
The author is a writer, editor and journalist who has worked on an array of national newspapers and magazines in the UK. He is married with two grown up children and lives in Kent. Richard Clark is also the author of The Greek Islands – A Notebook; Rhodes – A Notebook; Corfu – A Notebook; and Richard Clark’s Greek Islands Anthology
‘Clark is particularly good at the colours, flavours and scents of Greece. He has got under the skin of the place in a way few outsiders have been able to.’
Mark Hudson – bestselling author and winner Somerset Maugham Award, Thomas Cook Travel Book Award, Samuel Johnson Prize
‘Clark’s use of words is so beautiful, subtle and soft it pulls you wholeheartedly into his world. There is poetry in his words and through his eyes. I recommend anyone missing Greece, visiting Greece or just wishing they could go there to take a look!’
Sara Alexi – bestselling author of the Greek Village Series
