Typed Note to a doctor whose patients find Durrell's books theapeutic
Typed Note signed: "Lawrence Durrell", 5x3 card bearing his printed name. No place, no date. In full: "Dear Sir: Thank you for your letter. I suppose your patients come from drab and poverty stricken backgrounds and find color and romance in my novels. I would like to think that they were of some help in your therapy. Yours". Lawrence Durrell (1912-1990), born in India, was an expatriate British poet and novelist best known for his Alexandria Quartet (1957-1960). Although he worked intermittently for the British Foreign Office, Durrell disliked English customs, and preferred to live in Mediterranean locations: the Greek island of Corfu; Alexandria, Egypt, and France. He was a close friend of novelist Henry Miller. Altogether he wrote sixteen novels, eleven poetry collections, four plays, seven travel books, for books of humor, and many published letters and essays. He reportedly declined a knighthood, believing his right-wing politics might prove an embarrassment. Fine condition.
