Colenso Books (London), in conjunction with the Durrell Library of Corfu, will be publishing later this month THE PLACEBO by Lawrence Durrell. This contains three hitherto unpublished partial drafts of what eventually became a very different novel, TUNC. All three drafts ("A Village of Turtle-doves", "The Placebo: An Attic Comedy" and "Dactyl") are set in Greece in the late 1930s to 1950s. There are also extensive essays by the two editors, Richard Pine and David Roessel. Further details can be found at <https://durrelllibrarycorfu.wordpress.com/new-lawrence-durrell-publication/>. The book can be pre-ordered from <colensobooks at gmail.com>, and will also be available from <www.amazon.co.uk> after publication. All enquiries to <colensobooks at gmail.com>.
