Book Description Penguin. 1 Paperback(s), 1986. soft. Book Condition: New. The events surrounding the interwoven circle of Nessim, Justine, Narouz, Pursewarden and the other major characters of Lawrence Durrell's Alexandria Quartet are given a very different perspective in this third novel of the series, from 1958. Their complex relationships and intrigues are seen through the political prism of a world plunging towards war, as David Mountolive—once emotionally engaged with Nessim's set—now returns to Egypt as the British ambassador. The four novels of the Alexandria Quartet—Justine, Balthazar, Mountolive, and Clea—follow a circle of couples as they come together and part with growing and then waning passion in pre–World War II Egypt. 320.

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 1992. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. 214 x 149 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The intrigues of Justine and Balthazar multiply and deepen in the third volume of the Alexandria Quartet, giving us a novel of labyrinthine intricacy and mesmerizing beauty. In the first two novels of this profoundly innovative masterpiece, Lawrence Durrell explored two sides of a romantic quadrangle involving several inhabitants of prewar Alexandria. Now that geometry is seen from a startling new angle through the clinical eye of a British diplomat, for whom love is only another form of statecraft. Like its predecessors, Mountolive is a novel of vertiginous disclosures, in which the betrayer and the betrayed share secret alliances and an adulterous marriage turns out to be a vehicle for the explosive passions of the modern Middle East. Durrell is almost without peer in conveying atmosphere and mood. Even if his Alexandria never existed on this earth, it is now as real as Hawthorne s Rome, Proust s Paris, Loti s Constantinople. . . . Mountolive is dazzlingly cohesive, beautifully controlled from beginning to end. Saturday Review A work of splendid craft and troubling veracity. The New York Times Mountolive has vivid imagery and scenes of ghastly hilarity. . . . Readers will be sharply aware that they are encountering an acute intelligence pursuing a grand design. TIME.
