/I think it interesting that the narrator never describes Justine in the detail that Durrell describes Eve./

speaking of stylistics, i struggle to avoid over describing my characters.

the objective is to let the reader fill in the details.

thus providing a far more impressive smack of the comet on earth's surface.

is this technique more effective than profuse desecription?

best to all,
from a too frequent commentor 
who is definitely not a scholar.
