Thanks, Charles.  I hadn't seen Ms. Lagnado speak before.  She's  
charming, no?  She and Andre Aciman (Out of Egypt) are primarily  
writing about nostalgia within an Egyptian context.  I wonder why  
neither mention or allude to Durrell.  Aciman's omission in this  
regard seems to me particularly grevious.
