In the Balkan and Levant trilogies (we have both sets on offer), Manning's "portrait of a group of British expatriate teachers, writers and diplomats caught up in the disruptions of the conflict [Second World War] sets an intimate study of personal relationships in the context of international political and military intrigue across a five year period. Her fictionalized treatments of wartime Romania, Greece and Egypt convey as a backdrop the suffering caused by the collapse of old imperial Europe, the rampant spread of fascist ideology and the mass displacement of populations, while focusing in the foreground on the fragile marriage of the trilogies’ protagonists, Harriet and Guy Pringle."
