To celebrate the new edition of her classic texts, Mermaid Singing and Peel Me a Lotus, Polly Samson (A Theatre for Dreamers) and Tanya Dalziell and Paul Genoni (Half the Perfect World: Writers, Dreamers and Drifters on Hydra, 1955-1964) discuss the life and literary legacy of Charmian Clift. Glorious accounts of the bohemian life Charmian, husband George Johnston and their family led in Greece, these two books encapsulate the vivid, passionate and outrageously talented woman who was years ahead of her time.
