About the Author

Lawrence Durrell (1912-1990) was a British novelist, poet, dramatist, and travel writer. He preferred not to be associated with Britain and instead considered himself cosmopolitan. He attained fame in 1957 after publishing Justine, the first volume of his ambitious Alexandria Quartet series. Balthazar and Mountolive followed in 1958, with Clea in 1960. He published many other novels, including Tunc (1968) and its sequel Nunquam (1970), and the Avignon Quintet series, consisting of five novels published between 1974 and 1985. His final book, Caesar's Vast Ghost: Aspects of Provence was published the year he died, in 1990.

Henry Miller (1891--1980) was one of the most controversial American novelists during his lifetime. His book, The Tropic of Cancer, was banned in the some U.S. states before being overruled by the Supreme Court. New Directions publishes several of his books.
Ian S. MacNiven (b. 1938) edited The Durrell-Miller Letters: 1935-1980.
