Zorba the Greek - Nikos Kazantzaki 1952 - John Lehmann, London - First Edition in English ‘Zorba the Greek is rich in the sights, sounds and smells – wild sage, mint and thyme, the orange-blossom scent worn by Madame Hortense, the citrus and almond trees – of life on Crete: the rabbits eaten, the sea that both men plunge into, the wine drunk.’ – The Guardian

A handsomely bound, first edition in English of Nikos Kazantzaki’s modern classic, the story of a passionate Greek working man named Zorba, whose years have not dimmed the gusto and amazement with which he responds to all life offers him, whether he is working in the mine, confronting mad monks in a mountain monastery, embellishing the tales of his life or making love to avoid sin. Zorba’s life is rich with all the joys and sorrows that living brings and his example awakens in the narrator an understanding of the true meaning of humanity.
