Steeped in the juices of international history, flavoured with the unadulterated ambition of its main characters, Farewell Alexandria is brought to a rolling boil as it chronicles the story of three generations of one family. Whisking the reader on a worldwide tour using locations such as Egypt, Ethiopia, London, Paris and New York, the multiple plots in this narrative are filled with everything from boardroom treachery, the innocence of first love and downright torrid sex.  Author Derek Adie Flower has lived in Egypt, France and Italy and although Farewell Alexandria is fictional, some of the events recounted do reflect a past reality. Alexandria, between the wars, still holds an unforgettable charm and fascination, which is why the story begins and ends in the city of Cleopatra. The family saga relates the elation of love, the devastation of loss, and the rise from poverty to power wealth can bring; all amidst economical and political history.
