    The Quartet

    This is a work of literature and a masterpiece. Durrel's description of people and place are poetic. He is a master of language. But perhaps best of all is the way he uncovers the many deceitful faces of love. How betrayal and delusion are its constants. A book in four parts, the weakest Mountolive still had huge moments. Durrel is not big on plot. He is more interested in the players themselves and his cast is engaging. The men and the women brought to life through humour and psychology. His ear for a moving anecdote keeps you riveted as does his descriptions which are direct but full of drama. He can describe a flotilla of boats wending their way through the harbour of Alexandra like butterflies in such a way the image tranfixes. I will read this again someday. This is writer whose prose powerfully brings to life a whole city and leaves it hanging over one like the canvas of a mediaeval tent.
