Why publish? This would be an ideal digitization project.

Any efforts by some ambitious scholar  to compile Durrell's voluminous
correspondence?  I guess the question is, who would publish it?

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.
