Summary

The politics of love, the intrigues of desire, love and murder, moved obscurely in the dark corners of Alexandria's streets and squares, brothels and drawing rooms- moved like a great congress of eels in the slime of plot and counter-plot.
In this second volume in Durrell's Alexandria Quartet, the story and the characters come more clearly into focus. Darley, the reflective Englishman, receives from Balthazar, the pathologist, a mass of notes which attempts to explain what really happened between the tempestuous Justine, her husband Nessim, Clea the artist, and Pursewarden the writer.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

This is great literature. The reader is excellent when reading lines of English male characters. But any lines of women or Egyptians are so awful as to grate on the ears.
