Personal Quote:

[in 1979, on writing books] I try to get it over with as quickly as possible. Larry [his brother, Lawrence Durrell] writes for posterity, but I write for money--it provides me with the wherewithal to do the things I really like doing, which is rushing off to Mexico to catch volcano rabbits.
