Below is a selection of books whose stories are either passed on, or refer to the island.

One wants the traveller to get to know the little town of Oia and the work of its people. The other aims beyond what the senses easily perceive. It seeks to put into words what is hidden, to hover over it just long enough for it to be revealed.

The Greek Islands by Lawrence Durrell was published in 1978 and is a very personal guide that weaves together evocative descriptions, history and myth, architectural and archaeological study and personal reminiscence. With one hundred outstanding photographs, this book is another classic by Durrell who knew Greece as well as anyone in history as well as a systematic exploration of the many islands of the Aegean Sea some well-known and others more obscure.
