A House in Corfu - "A House in Corfu is the story of one of the most beautiful places on earth, still astonishingly unspoilt, on the west coast of Corfu. In the early 1960s, Emma Tennant's parents, on a cruise, spotted a magical bay and decided to build a house there. This book is the story of that house, Rovinia, set in 42 hectares of land above the bay where legend has it Ulysses was shipwrecked and found by Nausicaa, daughter of King Alcinous".

Corfu Banquet - "In an extract from her new memoir, Corfu Banquet, the novelist Emma Tennant describes the excitement of returning to her family's Greek hideaway after a long winter away" (The Observer, 2003).
