Recently i spent 20 days in italy and one of the many places i visited was the visually stunning island of capri this coupled with my interest and admiration for the intrepid novelist graham greene made me an ideal reader for shirley hazzards memoir about greenes time on the island greene on capri 2000. Greene on capri by shirley hazzard in this book we get the story of graham greenes various trips stays and excursions on the island of capri this is all told from the perspective of shirley hazzard friend to greene. Greene on capri by shirley hazzard is a beautifully written subtle economical sketch of the man hazzard met greene when he was already in his sixties and she is at once incisive about his cruelty and generous about his charm. In greene on capri hazzard uses their ever volatile intimacy as a prism through which to illuminate greenes mercurial character his work and talk and the extraordinary literary culture that long thrived on this ravishing enchanted island. The man with the beret was graham greene i recognised him as one would and also because i had seen him in the past on capri at the restaurant gemma near the piazza where he dined at a corner table with his companion and great love of the postwar decade catherine walston
