Kirkus UK
'The Avignon Quintet... is an enigmatic and secretive work, a cluster of dark passages and gaudy treasure-filled caves beside the thrusting baroque edifice of his earlier Alexandria Quartet,' said Patrick Parrinder in the London Review of Books. This is the first one-volume edition of the five novels that comprise it: Monsieur, Livia, Constance, Sebastian and Quinx, published between 1974 and 1985. These self-contained but closely linked novels, set mainly in and around southern France, but ranging widely in time and place, are vintage Durrell, exploring the lives and loves of a bizarre assortment of characters.
