It is true that Durrell (most probably) had not read The Good Soldier 
until after 1959, but he admired it immensely and included it in his 
CalTech lectures in  1974: '[Ford was] a major talent, with the capacity 
to range over the whole field of memory selecting events or sequences of 
events from all the tenses of memory past, future, perfect, pluperfect, 
and the novelistic present (the historic present) and fit them together 
so that they will supplement and comment on each other as images in a 
poem do'.
