Lawrence Durrell’s The Alexandria Quartet is the selection for March 2012’s Guardian Books online Reading Group.
Faber and Faber recognized the online Reading Group by donating 20 gift copies of the 2012 reissue of The Alexandria Quartet. All 20 copies were snapped up immediately after the announcement — a promising sign of great things to come!
Durrell 2012 encourages everyone interested to pick up a copy of The Alexandria Quartet and start reading. Post early — and post often!
A basket of quail burst open in the bazaar. They did not try to escape but spread out slowly like spilt honey. Easily recaptured.
– Lawrence Durrell, Justine (1957)
