Reader's note

This brilliant title has been described as 'dramatic, funny, moving and crackling with irony..' Author Olivia Manning describes how the bloody desert battle of Alamein is over and how in Cairo, soldiers on leave, diplomats, journalists and the dwindling British community inhabit a city on edge with the nervous exhilaration of survival. Guy Pringle is still teaching English at the institute while Harriet, unaware that she is mourned for dead, has gone on impulse to Damascus. Together they were incompatible, but apart, it seems, they will be lost. This book concludes the thrilling 'Levant trilogy which follows 'The Balkan Trilogy' a fine series that will keep you turning the pages.
