It is not readily apparent that Mountolive's missing father is modeled, at
least in part, on Francis J. Mott. But one might argue that Durrell's
meeting with Mott was much like the reunion with a missing father. And Mott
was the inspiration for some of Durrell's most interesting passages. Otto
Rank is also part of this soup mix.
