Summary

In Mountolive, the third volume in Durrell's The Alexandria Quartet, the events surrounding the interwoven community of Nessim, Justine, Narouz, Pursewarden, and the other major characters are given a very different perspective. The intrigues and complex relationships are seen through the political prism of a world plunging toward war. David Mountolive, once emotionally involved with Nessim's set, now returns to Egypt as the British ambassador.....

Wrong Narrator!!

I absolutely love the Alexandria Quartet, but Nigel is awful.
Does not fit the character at all and his portrayal of women is horrendous.
Too bad as it ruined the stories for me.
