A provocative observation, Ed.  

My response would be: How did Lawrence Durrell define "great writers"?  How many women writers are mentioned in his _Key_ &c.?

Of course he associated with any number of significant writers--Freya Stark, Anais, &c.  But I do not know if any of those women rate highly on his list of great writers. . . .

I am looking forward to more posts!
