William Graves' memoir about growing up with a famous father and living in Majorca through the middle of the twentieth century.

About the Author

William Graves is Robert Graves's son and Literary Executor. He still lives in Deya, but earns a living as a geologist consulting to the oil industry. He is married with two children.


An excellent short memoir, recalling the magic of his childhood on Majorca, but also showing how hard it is to live with such a father. * Derwent May, European *
William Graves's forthright memoir not only gives a sharp account of Father's foibles but offers a fuller evocation of the swiftly changing scene at Deya and Palma than in Robert's sketchy Majorca Observed. * London Magazine *
In Wild Olives, William, the eldest son of Robert Graves's second marriage, has given us a delightful, personal account of life with father after the family's return to Majorca - all the local intrigues, litigation and gossip interlaced with vivid descriptions of the mental processes by which Graves imagined himself back into the past or made mercurially intuitive connections like some kind of literary Sherlock Holmes * Times Literary Supplement *
