Book Decscription<br/>Set amid the corrupt glamour and multiplying intrigues of Alexandria in the 1930s and 1940s, the novels of Durrell's "Alexandria Quartet" (of which this is the first) follow the shifting alliances - sexual, cultural and political - of a group of quite varied characters.<br/><br/>My Review<br/>Durrell's writing is beautiful but this book is not for everyone. It is mostly a monologue where he uses his words to create an atmosphere that is pure magic Some of his sentences will stay with you for a long time. After reading Justine, I feel a need to go on and read the rest of the quartet. His writing is very addictive.
