    Justine, the first book of the legendary Alexandria Quartet, gets the disco treatment.

    This novel was published in 1957 and has attracted devotees ever since. Told from the perspective of an unnamed narrator, it’s a non-linear, intense examination of the city of Alexandria, Egypt, and a particular woman who lives there.

    Tod, Julia and Rider all agree it is dense, overwritten, and largely plot-less.

    Are these strengths or weaknesses?
