The Black Book, Paperback Book


First published in Paris in 1938, Durrell's third novel is the story, told from the inside, of the lives and loves of a group of struggling writers and artists in a seedly London hotel..

Controversial at the time because of its sexual frankness, the book was finally published in its complete form only through the efforts of Henry Miller.
