Publisher's Summary

Justine is the first volume in The Alexandria Quartet, four interlinked novels set in the sensuous, hot environment of Alexandria just before the Second World War. Within this polyglot setting of richly idiosyncratic characters is Justine, wild and intense, wife to the wealthy business man Nessim, a mari complaisant. Her emotional and sexual wildness fuels a highly charged atmosphere which, caught famously by Durrell's poetic language, made Justine (1957), and three novels that complete the Quartet - Balthazar (1958), Mountolive (1958), and Clea (1960) - both a critical and a popular success.

    "A Crime to Abridge"

    Groundbreaking literature that flows like rhythymic waves of sensual atmospheric honey to the ears and mind. Here are lives and loves and place so exquisitely examined. Abridgement here is a disservice to anyone who has never read this 1st novel of the Alexandrian Quartet, and painful to one who has. Sigh; Dream; Ache; Fear; Yearn for more.
