Robert Graves in Majorca
Off soon to Majorca, where Dad interviewed Robert Graves at his home in Deja. Now a museum. Looking forward to visiting. i think David Jones filmed it. dad did the interview. Unlike Durrell, whom he thought meretricious, Dad liked Graves. Kingsley Amis visited around the same time and had this to say: "I have never again encountered a group of people so radically opposed to falseness, meanness or any expression of bad manners".
