The lost world of Lawrence Durrell:
Durrell’s prestige as a novelist has waned, perhaps forever. But his reputation as a 20th century travel writer is confirmed, next to Fitzroy Maclean and Patrick Leigh-Fermor in the British pantheon. He was also a renowned poet and occasional musician. The British Library has released a centenary audiobook that includes much of his non-fiction work, and it’s worth listening to out of curiosity.
