“Lose yourself in bestselling author Lawrence Durrell’s sublime novel about a group of English tourists trapped in the minotaur’s labyrinth on Crete … ‘Spellbinding … A fine storyteller.’ Guardian ‘Superb … Quite simply a lovely work of art.’ New York Times A group of English tourists have come ashore from their cruise ship to explore the island of Crete. This motley crew – including a painter, spiritualist, spinster, soldier, convalescent, and elderly couple – are holidaying to seek respite from a broken post-war world. But their journey reaches a disastrous climax when they visit a cave reputed to be the legendary labyrinth of the minotaur, and become trapped within … Set in the glorious Mediterranean landscapes which Lawrence Durrell so famously evoked in his travel writing and novels, The Dark Labyrinth is a morality tale unlike any other. Artfully blending horror and humour, comedy and tragedy, witty allegory and profound philosophy, it is a sublime novel, as refreshing today as it was decades ago. ‘Superb, not only in the great passages of poetical description but also [the] casual wit and the brilliance of comment.’ Observer ‘Will amuse those who enjoy satires on English manners and morals, engage readers who like a build-up of suspense and delight lovers of the sensuous world of the Greek islands.’ New York Times”
