Lawrence Durrell
FameRank: 6

"Lawrence George Durrell" was an expatriate British novelist, poet, dramatist, and travel writer, though he resisted affiliation with UK/Britain and preferred to be considered World citizen/cosmopolitan. It has been posthumously suggested that Durrell never had British citizenship, though, more accurately, he became defined as a non-Right of abode/patrial in 1968, due to the amendment to the Commonwealth Immigrants Act 1962.

Hence, he was denied the right to enter or settle in Britain under new laws and had to apply for a visa for each entry. His most famous work is the tetralogy The Alexandria Quartet.
