You must read: Lawrence Durrell Alexandria Quartet

Read Alexandria Quartet, it’s a beautiful read, you can find out more about Durrell here. His prose is fabulous, I know his style of writing is quite the same as writing styles now, but there is a lot to learn from the pictures he paints in the minds eye.

If you’ve spent any time in the eastern med, south eastern Adriatic or have travelled through the Greek Isles, the Levantine littoral or the Egyptian med coast, you will instantly recognise the landscapes and seascapes he can describe.

All in all one for any discerning bookshelf.
