I do that sort of thing too, but only out of curiosity.  None of this bothers me in the least.  Durrell's survival does not depend on "marketing."  I hate that word, which defines corporate culture today.  He will survive because of who he is.

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."
