Publisher's Summary

In the final volume of the "Alexandria Quartet", Darley returns to an Alexandria now caught by war-fever. The conflagration has its effect on his circle - on Nessim and Justine, Balthazar and Clea, Mountolive and Pombal.

As an added bonus, when you purchase our Audible Modern Vanguard production of Lawrence Durrell's book, you'll also receive an exclusive Jim Atlas interview. This interview – where James Atlas interviews Daniel Mendelsohn about the life and work of Lawrence Durrell – begins as soon as the audiobook ends.

Listen to all four novels in The Alexandria Quartet.

This production is part of our Audible Modern Vanguard line, a collection of important works from groundbreaking authors.

    "Clea"

    This is the only book of the three which can be called a sequel. We now have all the major characters estabished.
    Clea is an artist and has emerged during the previous three books. Now she becomes the companion of Darley.
    We learn the intimate truth that has entirely conditioned Purswarden's life and of the hilarious elevation of an old buffer called Scobie.

    Durrell's canvas has been large and the landscape drawn with infinite attention to detail. His love and understanding of humanity in all its possible breadth and variety becomes a poem of compassion.
    The audible rendering of this magnificent work makes it possible to listen seamlessly to all four novels that are the Alexandria Quartet.
