I wonder if the discussion on Justine could include references to Robert Liddell (Unreal City - a novel based on Cavafy and Alexandria, about which I have read, without having been able to get the book), and D J Enright's novel Academic Year, also set in Alexandria. There was a group of English writers based in Egypt (Cairo and Alexandria) during or around the time of WWII (there is an intereting reference on the Website http://www.crescentmoon.org.uk/cresmoalex - ALEXANDRIA REVISITED The Alexandria of Lawrence Durrell, C.P. Cavafy, Edmund Keeley and Others by Jeremy Robinson). Liddell was also a travel writer attached to Greece.
