I've read the Bradbury, and it is not only 3rd rate Durrell but also 2nd rate Bradbury. Most disappointing. RP

  Subject: [ilds] durrell parodies


  I have been reading about the parodies of Lawrence Durrell's style found in Roger Angell's A Day in the Life of Roger Angell (1970) and Malcolm Bradbury's Who Do You Think You Are (1976).  I have read neither of these books.  Has anyone on the list read one or the other?  Is the parody worthy of the subject?  That is, does it show us something that we did not know?

  The original reference to Angell's and Bradbury's Durrell parodies was found in:

      "Impervious to Criticism": Contemporary Parody and Trash
      Terry Caesar
      SubStance, Vol. 20, No. 1, Issue 64. (1991), pp. 67-79.

  Thanks!

  Charles
