Product description

Review

Utterly enthralling - a beautifully-written voyage of discovery that takes us deep into the heart of music-making. -- Deborah Moggach

A readable, well-written, charming and original example of the history-sleuthing genre of non-fiction. The book leads the reader with a light touch through matters and histories that might seem esoteric, but are in fact consistently intriguing because of the very personal character of the telling. Attlee has the natural story-teller's gift, Stephen Walsh, Professor Emeritus of Music at Cardiff University, and author of Debussy: A Painter in Sound

Praise for 'The Land Where Lemons Grow: The Story of Italy and its Citrus Fruit', -

It turned out to be the book I pressed on friends more than any other this year. If they were bemused, I hope they remained to be charmed. I read it randomly a few pages at a time until there were no pages I hadn't read twice. It was my respite from purposive reading. -- Tom Stoppard, The Times Literary Supplement, Books of the Year

Thrillingly sensual, and zesty in every sense, Helena Attlee is the best of companions as she leads us through sundrenched citrus groves and in and out of history. A book full of surprises, with many curiosities, stories and recipes on the way, Deborah Moggach, author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Truly fascinating . . . For many years, Attlee has been collecting evidence for a story of citrus trees in Italy. The result, The Land Where Lemons Grow, is remarkable, excellently produced and essential for all lovers of Italy, their summer libraries and out-of-season itineraries . . . Attlee's book is unmissable for anyone intrigued by the relation between humans' travel, greed and ingenuity and the spread of the plants that we eat, smell and drink -- Robin Lane Fox, The Financial Times

Book Description

An unexpected journey through Italy, led by the voice of a violin.
