The fourth and final volume of the famous tetralogy (along with JUSTINE (1957), BALTHAZAR (1958) and MOUNTOLIVE (1958)) by the late British expatriate and author of PIED PIPER OF LOVERS and THE BLACK BOOK. First published in 1960, CLEA is set in the Egyptian city of Alexandria of the 1930s and 1940s. What can one say about perfection? One does not just look at the ceiling of the Cistine Chapel as a great work of art but rather as perfection personified, merely mediated by paints and gilt. This book is exactly the same, its perfection is personified not by pigments and gold, but by ink and prose. It is indeed rare that an artist pours their all into their work,but when it does occur, it is unilaterally hailed as a magnum opus. Clea, in my opinion is just such a work. The way in which Durrell contrasts the blunt style of description with the uncompairable beauty of the subject matter pushes the book deeper into the sanctum sanctorum of literary perfection. In thinking about this review, perfection seems too cold and metallic a word to be applied to such a beautiful work of art. There seems to be no word that accurately describes the flawless beauty of this book, but these are the limitations of language.

(7.75 x 5.1 x 0.65 inches). 223 pages. Language: English. Weight: 8.4 ounces. Reprint Edition (1988); Fifth Printing thus. Trade Paperback. The Northern Irishman Brian Moore wrote JUDITH HEARNE when he was only twenty-seven. The first of his novels to be published under his own name, it immediately made his name as a major writing talent. For years different directors and publishers wanted to bring the story to the screen and to the stage; it was finally made into a film in the late 1980s directed by Jack Clayton and starring Maggie Smith. THE LONELY PASSION OF JUDITH HEARNE (as Moore later re-titled it) is a character study of a plain and down-at-heels spinster living in her forties in Belfast near the middle of the twentieth century. We first meet Judy Hearne through her thoughts and those of the people who inhabit her boarding house: Moore was much influenced in this stage of his career by James Joyce, and we discretely move through the characters' thoughts as the narrative progresses. As it does so, we find out more about Judith that contradicts not only what she had told others but even herself in her private moments. Raised by a strict and financially comfortable aunt, whom she loved but who demanded Judith sacrifice everything to take care of her, she has ended up imprisoned in virtually in genteel poverty by history, by her family, by her Church, and her own pride; she is loved by no one, and has no hope of better prospects. We learn too in time that she is only now in a dry spell from the alcoholism she has developed in later life. A misunderstanding with her landlady's brutal but charming brother results in Judith's return to the bottle. The novel is cruelly constructed, perhaps in the way that only a younger writer of great talent would, so as to take almost everything away from Judith by the conspiracy of circumstance. Everything, down to her snobbish genteel pride and her simple faith. The narrative is shaped nearly like the stations of the Cross, with Judith undergoing in the work's second half a series of trials which threaten to take more and more away from her. Brian Moore spares Judith (and his readers) almost nothing, showing what life is like with no companionship, no mercy, no prospects, and no faith. I'll come back to it, because it is so beautifully crafted.
