Thanks, James.  I've ordered Personal Modernisms.  Please announcement when your critical edition of Durrell's essays becomes available, in December presumably.

In the end, it came to me to rebuild and expand as a critical edition of Durrell's essays, memoirs, and travel writing (with an excellent preface from Baldwin!).  It's appearing in December from University of Alberta Press in time for the Christmas rush (hint...).  That's nearly wrapped up, and Peter & I should see the final proofs any day now (I've already gone through it with the copy editor).  The cover is, I think, very fine, and the typographical design is lovely.
