Justine Author:Lawrence Durrell "Here is a very remarkable novel:deeper in thought, more intricate in design, more distinguished in style than most novels...Justine is altogether worth our delighted and admiring attention: - NY Herald Tribune Book Review — "Durrell makes Alexandria seem a glitteringly sophisticated, dazzlingly beautiful, and suffocatingly evil place...Scenes la... more »id in the bars and boudoirs of exotic, decadent Alexandria are woven together by a hand of immense skill. The final effect is one of unity and great strength. A brilliant novel." Newsweek
"This is a profound book and a poetical one. It stands out with rare incandescence in modern fiction. The fine distinctions of human passion are expquisitely drawn...the really significant factor of the book is Durrell's superb handling of the human quest for expression." Savannah Morning News
"This is the best work of fiction I have read in some years...Demands comparison with the very best novels of our century and specifically, since it treats also of recollected experiences of love, with Proust's Remembrance of Things Past. Mr. Durrell has become a truly important writer."
