The travel notes and letters of Gustave Flaubert , adapted for radio by ELIZABETH TROOP from the translation by FRANCIS STEEGMULLER with Christopher Bidmead as Flaubert
' Kuchuk Hanem is a tall, splendid creature, lighter in colour than an Arab; she comes from Damascus: her skin, particularly on her body, is slightly coffee-coloured. When she bends her flesh ripples into bronze ridges. Her eyes are dark and enormous, her eyebrows black, her nostrils open and wide; heavy shoulders, full, apple-shaped breasts.'
' His descriptions of life along the Nile are not merely strikingly vivid, they anticipate the writings of our own day in their candour ' (ANTHONY CURTIS, FINANCIAL TIMES) Producer JOHN THEOCRARIS <Rpt)followed by an interlude
