About the Author

James Chatto's award-winning writing on food, wine and travel appears frequently in leading magazines and newspapers in the UK, the US and Canada. He is the author of four cookery books and has been a contributor to many others. In an earlier incarnation Chatto was an actor, a singer and a saxophonist with a single that reached number two in the Northern Soul charts.


'The Greek for Love" is a voluptuous, sensual dive into Corfu -- food, drink, the appeal of exile, and the story of a ripening love affair. There is a strand of melancholy within this memoir, as there must be in writing that rings so resoundingly true. But this book leaves one, in the end, grinning like an idiot and envious of the descriptive skills of its author. A lovely book, and the finest sort of travel writing.' -- Kevin Patterson, author of COUNTRY OF COLD 'James Chatto is a master storyteller ... He navigates the subject of his own life with wit, grace and enough frankness to soften the heart of any sceptic ... In Chatto we have a tour guide of inimitable perception and style. As with the food he so warmly describes throughout the book, we cannot help but devour his carefully constructed offering.' -- Toronto Star 20050320 'A searing journal of grief and healing ... a return journey to numbingly terrible events that began in love and ended in love.' -- Toronto Globe and Mail 20050320 'Engrossing ... Combines sensual detail with an engaging, down-to-earth account ... For anyone who's fantasized about running off to live on a Greek isle or any other idyllic spot abroad, this is a lovely way to do it vicariously.' -- Maclean's (Canada) 20050321 'Chatto has a keen awareness of the sensual ... Chatto's prose exults in the sensory overload of life in Loutses ... there is an optimistic sense of growth and regeneration' -- Quill & Quire 20050101 'Inspiring' -- Greece magazine 20050101 'This memoir will have you dreaming of idyllic beaches' -- Closer Magazine 20060701 'Despite the tragedy, this is an optimistic book, the narrative skipping between past and present, and Chatto writing unsentimentally and lyrically about both Corfu and his relationship with his family' -- Clover Stroud, Good Book Guide 20060701 'This sensual love story about two young people and Corfu, which became their home, is my book of the year ... It is a book that will touch the hearts of all who read it' -- Daily Mail 'Books for Christmas', Christopher Matthew 20060701
