Beginning with the affair of a young David Mountolive with the mother of Nessim and Narouz, this novel recounts his development and career as a diplomat, and finally places the materials previously seen in Justine and Balthazar in a different context.
As an added bonus, when you purchase our Audible Modern Vanguard production of Lawrence Durrell's book, you'll also receive an exclusive Jim Atlas interview. This interview – where James Atlas interviews Daniel Mendelsohn about the life and work of Lawrence Durrell – begins as soon as the audiobook ends.
"Mountolive has vivid imagery and scenes of ghastly hilarity.... Readers will be sharply aware that they are encountering an acute intelligence pursuing a grand design." (Time)
