I have missed some postings recently, so apologies if this has already been 
mentioned. In the TLS last week [Jan 16], there was a review of a book by 
Keith Brown, entitled Sightings - Selected literary essays, edited by Erik 
Tonning (Berlin: Peter Lang). The notice says this "closes with a valuable 
personal memoir of Lawrence Durrell, who became a writer, he [Brown] 
believed, because of a love of all things Elizabethan which he discovered as 
a child".
