"South Wind is a fascinating book, in the original sense of the adjective - spell-binding, mesmeric, and sometimes disturbingly prophetic... we leave it slightly drugged and mystified, yet somehow more aware things than when we started"- Jan Morris
The bishop was feeling rather sea-sick. Confoundingly sea-sick, in fact.
An Anglican bishop, on recuperative leave from his African diocese, alights at the island of Nepthene for a short stay on his passage to England. Soon he is caught up in the wild and exuberant antics of visitors and residents. Norman Douglas's famed, and infamous, novel of Capri is a hedonistic journey and an unforgettable classic, conjuring up the sexual non-conformity of the pre-World War I era.
