Tunc; a novel by Lawrence Durrell( Book )
112 editions published between 1958 and 2013 in 14 languages and held by 2,015 libraries worldwide
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.

The Greek Islands by Lawrence Durrell( Book )
73 editions published between 1978 and 2010 in 8 languages and held by 1,557 libraries worldwide
Par la notoriété de son auteur, on aura tout de suite compris que ce livre n'est pas un guide touristique conventionnel. Passionnément attaché à la Grèce où il a passé de longues années, Lawrence Durrell a voulu revisiter nombre de ses îles enchanteresses pour les décrire avec plus de vérité encore. Ce qu'il offre ici est, mieux qu'un guide, un regard éclectique sur ce qu'il juge essentiel, indispensable de connaître. A la description de la nature, de la lumière, des sites, il mêle l'évocation de l'histoire, des mythes, de l'archéologie. De superbes photos, dont plusieurs sont en couleurs, ajoutent, à l'agrément du texte, une note artistique supplémentaire

White eagles over Serbia by Lawrence Durrell( Book )
96 editions published between 1957 and 2012 in 11 languages and held by 1,056 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
