Publisher's Summary

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.


What the Critics Say

"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)

horrible narration

What disappointed you about Mountolive?

I could hardly understand the narrator when he did different characters. It was way over done. I loved the series in book form. So disappointed!
