Just s brief acknowledgement.

Interesting and informative messages from both Richard and James dealing
with Durrell's Quartet and with Modernism respectively.

1. A study group on The Alexandria Quartet appears to be a promising
revival of focussed interest in the rich material of the AQ.

2. It so happens  that I am now trying to read - among other books and
amidst professional tasks - Peter Nicholls' Modernisms, A Literary Guide
(Second Edition), Palgrave Macmillan, 1995, 2009.

Dear all,

Greetings from Toulouse where Isabelle Keller-Privat has jus organized a
very successful conference on the Mediterranean hinterlands:

http://www.univ-tlse2.fr/accueil/agenda/the-mediterranean-and-its-
hinterlands-le-pays-en-profondeur--377012.kjsp

There were plenty of excellent papers on Durrell to be watched for in
Caliban in the future. I'll announce to the list when that happens.

Also, for anyone in Europe, the Art et Libert? exhibition of Egyptian
Surrealism starts in Paris in October and runs in Dresden, Madrid, &
Liverpool until March 2018. It has some great material on Durrell's milieu
in 1940s Egypt (very highly recommended):

Last and least, I have a squib with a bit on Durrell through the British
Association of Modernist Studies. This one's just for fun:

stalks-through-modernism/

All best,
James
