Any why not?  Durrell talked freely about himself, perhaps too  
encourage "delving into the black box of [his] soul and character."   
Joyce said he placed enough puzzles in his work to keep people  
guessing for centuries, or something to that effect.  Durrell may have  
been playing a similar game.
