In 2001 he retired from an executive position at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC to move with his wife Lynn-Marie Smith to Key West, Florida to concentrate on a series of five novels revolving around the city of Berlin in the 20th century, one of which takes place in the Conch Republic, as the island of Key West is also known. His most recent books are Paris Now and Then: Memoirs, Opinions and a Companion to the City of Light for the Literate Traveler (2002, revised edition 2004), Mediterranean Sketches: Fictions, Memories and Metafictions (2005), A Chronology of the Life and Times of Lawrence Durrell (2007), revised editon The Durrell Library of Corfu website 2016, Situation Reports on the Emotional Equipoise: Collected Poems 1959-2006 (2007), Radovic’s Dilemma.

Instant Interview!

What do you like best about writing?

The surge of other-worldly feeling when a sentence truly works the way it should.

Do you write on a specific schedule or as the mood strikes?

I work from about 8 in the morning until lunch, then from about 4 in the afternoon until the PBS News Hour at 6:00 o'clock (when at home, when abroad at various points during the day)
