Tunc (meaning next in Latin) is the first of two novels [the other being Nunquam] and represents the scientist. Told in typical flashes of memory, the story describes the induction of a gifted scientist, Felix, into Merlin, the mysterious and very powerful firm that everybody seems to be a part of. He soon finds himself married to the ill Merlin heiress, Benedicta, and recipient of limitless wealth. As Benedicta becomes more and more tempestuous and suffers more and more psychological damage, Felix feels a new yearning for his scientific freedom. Something, whether it be the never seen chairman of Merlin, Julian, or the firm itself is always a step ahead of him. His [Felix's] rebellion and attempt to escape leads to the death of his son and his own incarceration in a mental asylum. His lover at the beginning of the novel, Iolanthe, is likewise captured by the Firm through its net of contracts and capitalist acquisitions, ultimately leading to her death. --Adella L.

A madman, disguised as a nun, makes his way to an apartment in Geneva, intent on murder. An Egyptian banker hears his death sentence decreed by fellow members of a gnostic brotherhood. A novelist confronts, in the flesh, a character he has created. More than ever the peculiar magic of Lawrence Durrell is at work in Sebastian, fourth in his "quincunx," The Avignon Quintet. This novel is set mainly in Geneva and its environs, where Constance, a psychoanalyst, practices her profession while trying to come to terms with the end of a passionate love affair. The Egyptian Affad, or Sebastian, realizing that his attachment to Constance is a violation of the gnostic code, returns to Alexandria. There he learns that a letter prescribing his death has been mailed to Geneva and innocently intercepted by Constance. Durrell's story follows the trail of the letter as it falls into the hands of the madman Mnemedis... -- from dust jacket
Selected poems of Lawrence Durrell by Lawrence Durrell( Book )
62 editions published between 1956 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,028 libraries worldwide
In this new selection from the poetry of Lawrence Durrell (the first for thirty years), Peter Porter has drawn on the full range of the published work, from A Private Country (1943) to Vega (1973), and has provided a long overdue revaluation of Durrell's poetic career. In his detailed and generous introduction, Porter makes the case for A Private Country as one of the most accomplished debut collections of the twentieth century, and traces Durrell's preoccupations and poetic personality within the wider scene. The selection of poems makes its own strong case for the continuing power and origin
White eagles over Serbia by Lawrence Durrell( Book )
73 editions published between 1957 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,006 libraries worldwide
Methuen, a seasoned survivor of countless spy missions thrust upon him by the Old Etonians running the Awkward Shop (as the British Secret Service was called), feels he needs a respite from it all. He is looking forward to some trout fishing in Scotland. But when his superior, Dombey, explains that something strange is afoot in the Balkans, Methuen's curiosity is immediately aroused. A fellow British spy has been murdered on a remote mountainside in Serbia by the White Eagles - underground Royalists - presumably because he fell afoul of their life-or-death struggle against Tito and the Communists. What the Royalists are up to is a mystery Dombey wants Methuen to solve. The Cold War - weary Methuen feels his blood stir. At the very least, he thinks, the trout fishing ought to be excellent. Setting up camp in a cave deep in the Serbian countryside, Methuen baits his hooks and waits for the contact who will lead him into the deeper water of the mystery. He finds out soon enough that his mission involves far more than sport fishing - his life is the one on the line. Hunted by both the Communists and the White Eagles, Methuen is played to his limit. He fights for his life, summoning every ounce of his strength as he gets pulled into a roaring cataract of events that eventually lands him on a dizzying mountain peak - and reels readers in for a tour-de-force climax that will leave them breathless
