India-born British novelist Lawrence "Larry" Durrell is famous for "The Alexandria Quartet," which he published between 1957 and 1960. It was listed as one of the best novels of the 20th century by the Modern Library, but, well, I just couldn't get into. It has the kind of bland modernist style that seems experimental (shifting points of view, radical subjectivity, no clear narrative) but is really just kinda exhausting. Yeah, he writes well, but I had no interest in the characters or anything that was happening. In fact, I'm not even sure what was happening. Something about love and Alexandria. Fun fact: Durrell was buddies with Henry Miller. Fave line: "Foreskins will fall like snow tonight."
