In Alexandria

Durrell's Alexandria Quartet

Does anyone read this any more?  It seems to have all but vanished from the literary stage--and that is a shame.


  1. Steven - I haven't read it yet but an edition on my shelves awaiting an appropriate moment. From what I have dipped into, it seems very fine.

  2. Yes, I have. Several times, in fact.

    I think I've read just about every work of fiction that Durrell has written and most of his non-fiction. I have several collections of his poetry and one of these days. . .

    A lit discussion group I belong to has done both the Alexandria Quartet and the Avignon Quintet within the past 6 years.
