The Alexandria Quartet
Justine, Balthazar, Mountolive, CleaBook - 2012
Lawrence Durrell was one of the best-selling, most celebrated English novelists of the late 20th century. "The Alexandria Quartet" is unquestionably his most admired work, at heart a sensuous and brilliant evocation of wartime Alexandria. In this world of corrupt glamour, L.G. Darley attempts to reconcile himself to the end of his affair with the dark, passionate Justine Hosnani - setting alight a beguiling exploration of sexual and political intrigue that the author himself described as 'an investigation of modern love'.
