Livia, published in 1978 and sub-titled Buried Alive, is the second volume in Lawrence Durrell's The Avignon Quintet. The novel revolves around the novelist Blandford, introduced at the end of the previous novel Monsieur, and introduces us to the sisters Livia and Constance, both briefly figuring at the end of Monsieur, their brother Hillary, Constance's husband Sam and a number of other new characters. Blanford's creation Robin Sutcliffe, although dead since the previous novel, makes further appearances.
