Novelist Henry Miller was deeply inspired by Anne Poor's illustrations: "A glance at these vivid impressions of hers and I felt as if I were reliving my stay in Greece," he said, reportedly having not written a word about the place since completing The Colossus of Maroussi (1941). Poor's dynamic drawings are featured throughout this gallery book in b/w and color, accompanied by Miller's musings on the isles, their rich history, and their people.
