About the Author:

Lawrence Durrell was born in India and spent most of his working life outside Britain, living in France, Cyprus, Yugoslavia, Argentina, and Corfu. A writer of great versatility whose work included drama, poetry, and travel literature, he is probably best known for "The Alexandria Quartet," which has become one of the most widely read and influential works of the century.
