Riassunto: Ever wondered what it would be like to escape civilization to a place with nary a television and barely a phone? In 1983, David Fagan arrived on the Saronic Greek island of Hydra for an hour?s stay, ripped up his return ticket, and marooned himself as a permanent inmate of ?the Rock.? Through a series of anecdotes, affectionately termed ?rhubarbs,? he paints a vivid portrait of life among quirky expats and lovable locals on a unique island during a bygone era, before the first world and twenty-first century caught up with him.
L'autore: David Fagan, born of nomadic Irish parents in 1958, spent his formative years in Africa, confused by circumstances beyond his control. After lunch on a Greek island day trip in 1983, he opted against reboarding the cruise boat. He has lived and worked on Hydra full-time, pursuing his alterna-tive lifestyle by any means that presented itself, since 1984. These days he lives in Kamini, a village in many ways remi-niscent of Hydra 25 years ago, the Hydra portrayed in this book. He has a keen interest in astronomy, history, Formula 1 motor racing, and international rugby; he understands the rules of cricket and has mostly forgotten how to drive.
