Last Days in Paradise by George Farwell


All of us probably long, from time to time, to ‘get away from it all’, to escape to our ideal island. Twenty-five years ago, when he was only 21, George Farwell achieved what most of us only day-dream about. He lived for eighteen months on Tahiti – the legendary Tahiti of Gauguin and Rupert Brooke. The memory has haunted him ever since, he confesses: so he went back, with his Italian wife Noni, to rediscover paradise.
He now describes what he found there, with fascinating readability, in a book which – half travelogue, half social enquiry – recaptures the glamour while being strictly objective and hard-headed about it.
