In 1957 or ,58 Baltazar sold 7,000 copies in a  month; a better potboiler 
n'est pas than Espirit de Corps and we would all say  a better book - but then 
Durrell was gold at this time.

regarding the  ownership of authors, I would say that actors fit into this 
theme as well. We  clap approvingly when Kate Blanchette does a worthy film 
about 'the big  issues' but cringe when she turns up in a c- grade porn movie and 
we are not  convinced when she says "Oh well, I was curious about this genre 
and..mmm It  was easy work for the money".

When I was freelancing, I would labour  over features and articles for 
quality magazines only to be paid a pittance  and then get $1000.00 for a half made 
up tacky story for a low brow bits and  bum mag like People or Aussie Post, 
now defunct. Same author, different  paycheck.
