I'd tend to note Liddell's allusion to T.S. Eliot's /The Waste Land/ in 
his title and Durrell's refutations of the same in the /Quartet/.  After 
all, Durrell asserts that his city is "Real" even though it's obviously 
fictionalized...  The struggle was on against Eliot as the strong poet 
as early as /Panic Spring/ and was made clear in /The Black Book/, which 
he offered Eliot for publication.

The Durrell-Liddell correspondence is held in the Gennadius Library in 
Athens and is quite intriguing.

Cheers,
James
