Anne Rice brought me to this book from her latest The Wolf Gift. The final short story in this volume was the most poignant for me. There is so much out there to read from one and a half centuries ago that is mostly lost on readers today. Thank you, Anne, for bringing old books to my attention. Now to read the other 5 books you mention in the novel.

Прекрасното старостилие отпреди повече от век за много ще се стори твърде нечетивно или досадно даже, но ...more
