LAWRENCE DURRELL (1912-1990), British novelist, poet & dramatist: Like both his parents, he was born in India. At age 11 he was sent back to England to continue his education. Never happy in England, at 23 he left for Corfu, the beginning of a life abroad in Europe, the Middle East, & S. America. Though at times he worked for the British Foreign Service, he preferred to be called cosmopolitan rather than British. Of his countless published works, the most famous is "The Alexandria Quartet"…
