CYPRUS (*)

The Cypriot — Andreas Koumi (2006)

Mundane prosaic affair set in Cyprus at the end of British rule. The book cover calls it a great holiday read, as if that’s a good thing and the prose lives down to that billing. A romance shuffling between grimy north London and an increasingly-divided Cyprus like a holidaymaker between the beach and buffet, it has a few good moments but fails to inspire with the material at its disposal.
