Seeing Meta Cerar's message about the neglect of Lawrence Durrell in Slovenia recalls my previous correspondence with her, from the time when she was translating "Dark Labyrinth". Her account of how she was told quite unequivocally that there was no interest in LD seems to extend to GD also (Meta has also translated MFOA). Meta wants to translate more Durrell (both kinds) but there is, apparently, no market. Is the neglect of/disdain for/ignorance of LD and GD in the Slavic countries a general phenomenon or is it limited to Slovenia?

I graduated with athesis on Alexandria Quartet years ago. A few years ago I translated theDark Labyrinth into Slovenian language and at the time I was translating itthere indeed was a wide discussion on the book on the ILDS list. I wonder ifyour thesis has an abstract in English, and if so, could you possibly sendit to me? I would love to read it. If not I would be very happy if you couldpoint out a few accents from your thesis. I'm so glad to hear there stillare people who enjoy and appreciate Durrell's literature. In Slovenia he isnot at all popular unfortunately.I do hope you will atttend next year's Durrell conference on Crete. Icertainly plan to be there and am looking forward to meeting you.
