Product description

Review

'The first piece of work by a new English writer to give me any hope for the future of prose fiction.' -- T.S. Eliot

'This is a wild, passionate, brilliantly gaudy and flamboyant extravaganza; it is intrinsically and essentially, the book of a young man ... richly obscene, energetically morbid, very often very funny indeed, self-pitying, but, above all, stylistically and verbally inventive as no other young man's novel of the period was even attempting to be.' --Philip Toynbee, Observer

'[Durrell's] prose renders ordinary scenes brilliantly strange ... while [the novel] may no longer shock, it will astonish.' --Independent on Sunday

Book Description

A group of intellectuals live a life of debauchery in The Black Book, Lawrence Durrell's third novel.
