Hi again,

    As a member of the Durrell Society, the intent behind my questioning of male readers' attraction to LD's femme fatales is to figure out, in general, how to expand interest in Durrell studies--by gender, race, age, etc--so that his works will survive through the 21st century.  Every time I travel, I go to bookstores and always look to see if his works are on the shelves.  I was recently in the Midwest and didn't find his books, even at the U. of Iowa Bookstore.  I like Bill's term, "diversity in the marketplace of ideas," but the big question is how to create it.  I think we're beyond feeling "tant pis."

                                                                                             --Anna Lillios

Speaking of which, let's hear it from the hermaphrodites.
