I must admit I haven't focused intensely on the biographical aspects.
However, although Justine and Balthazar were written very quickly, they were
the fruit of an intense, albeit delayed, maturing process. So I wouldn't say
the obscurity of the images is mostly due to quick writing. From what I read
in Ian's biography it was more as if Durrell already carried the book in his
head long before writing it. Please correct me if I'm wrong!

Best wishes
