The Black Book

Audiobook CD - 2013
Rate this:
The controversial third novel - banned for decades in the US and the UK - by one of the most celebrated English novelists of the late 20th Century, Lawrence Durrell. The Black Book, written when Durrell was only 24, was first published in France in 1938 but did not appear in America until 1960 and the UK until 1973 because of obscenity laws. Centring around a group of characters staying in a seedy London hotel in the 1930s, it is a novel of sex, death and isolation, fuelled by passion, anger and artistic innovation.
