In the autumn of 1915, in a ‘slightly heroic mood’, E. M. Forster arrived in Alexandria . . .

Threading 3,000 years of history with vibrant strands of literature and punctuating the narrative with his own experiences, Forster paints an incomparable portrait of the great city and, inadvertently, himself. With an introduction by Lawrence Durrell.
