About meLawrence Durrell (February 27, 1912 – November 7, 1990) was a writer, artist, and diplomat. He was a member of the experimental Villa Seurat group of 1930s Paris, and maintained a lifelong friendship with Henry Miller. His most well-known works are the Alexandria Quartet and The Black Book.
About my libraryDurrell was an avid reader, and often incorporated elements from works of history and mythology into his own fiction and poetry. His library includes many works by his contemporaries, including books inscribed to him by T.S. Eliot, Henry Miller, and others. After his death, his library was split between two institutions: Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIUC), and l'Universite Paris X Nanterre.
