I've no idea about US air dates but it was a very good mini series. I've read the book it was based on and seen Nilsen documentaries and David Tennant got it absolutely spot on.Anyone here know when ITV's "Des" (David Tennant as Dennis Nilsen, the British Hannibal Lector) is going to air over here?
This one looks good.
They let kids read Larry's work? ha ha. I loved some of the little literary snippets they worked into their dialog for those who knew the dynamics between the brothers. Larry never wrote about his mother, so she has a few quips about working her into his books. And, Gerald never wrote about Larry's wife, who was actually with him thourout Corfu and stayed married throughout WW2. So, they had her say, "It's like I'm not even here." Ha ha. There was more, but you have to listen for it.I tried to read a bunch of "Larry" Durrell as a kid. Bitter Lemons and Alexandria Quartet. Now I see he's got a list longer than my arm.
