When I was a student at Bennington College, I took a course on the novel from Alan Cheuse.  I didn't trust his judgment then--and I don't now.  He's not the type of person to appreciate Durrell.  Who's read THE GRANDMOTHER'S CLUB and THE LIGHT POSSESSED (Cheuse's novels)?  Just because he has a job at NPR doesn't mean he is the nation's arbiter of literature that will last the test of time.  His novels surely haven't.
