A retired Anglican Bishop stops off for a short visit to the Mediterranean island of Nepenthe, only to find himself seduced by the charm of its landscapes and imbroiled in the eccentric intrigues of its inhabitants. Christian morality comes up against pagan hedonism in an expansive, generous, sometimes scandalous, and often hilarious novel, that still casts a spell a century on from its publication.
