DURRELL: Balthazar (Nicolas Soames/ Nigel Anthony) (Naxos Audio Books: NA304612)

Add To Wish List + £13.99 - Item is discontinued.

The politics of love, the intrigues of desire ... love and murder, moved obscurely in the dark corners of Alexandria's streets and squares, brothels and drawing-rooms - moved like a great congress of eels in the slime of plot and counter-plot...' In Balthazar, the second volume in Durrell's Alexandria Quartet, the story and the characters come more clearly into focus. Darley, the reflective Englishman, receives from Balthazar, the pathologist, a mass of notes which attempt to explain what really happened between the tempestuous Justine, her husband Nessim, Clea the artist, Pursewarden the writer; new figures emerge and play key roles. Balthazar, in his 'Interlinear', explains and warns.
