My pleasure, David.

I remark and revere Durrell's ability to read and talk without blinders 
or barriers.  In that /Paris Review/ interview and throughout the body 
of the interviews, he ranges freely.  Sometimes the references are 
playful jests or bluffs, but still his reach of comparison and analogy 
is spontaneous, lively, and, in the earlier years, most unpredictable.
