Lawrence Durrell
The Alexandria Quartet
1957-1960

A literary experiment in relativity, each volume offers a different perspective on events in 1940's Egypt:

"...she listened to the soft clear drumming of the sea upon the long beaches mingled with the cough and stamp of horses in their new stalls beyond the courtyard...in the moist gathering darkness the fireflies had begun to snatch fitfully, filling them both with pleasure to think that already their oasis had begun to support other life than their own."

--from Justine
