All generalizations are flops -- including this one.

Could we get a list of Durrell's five humorous stories? Second, could 
we have at least a brief analysis of their humor? And could we have 
an example of the forced and contrived in Durrell's Antrobus stories?

  "Contrived" by the way means "ingeniously or artfully devised or 
planned." It's not so bad to contrive a story.
