Description
The four novels of the Alexandria QuartetJustine, 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. In this final book, Darley returns with Melissa's daughter to the city and his circle of friends, now all caught up in wartime fever. He has given up writing their story, having realized he can never know what the lives of Nessim and Justine, Balthazar and Clea, Mountolive and Pombal are really about. Yet when he falls in love with Clea, and she with him, Darley begins to understand how life itself is a fiction. The threads of the series are brought together here, but the story remains open-ended, like a cycle ready to repeat.

"A massive, marvelously concrete, deeply felt statement of faith.... [Lawrence Durrell's] style glows with the mineral deposits of many cultures. One of the most important works of our time has come to an end."—NYTBR
