I was reading a collection of short stories by a relatively young writer when I decided to preview Banks' new book. While I like the collection of stories, the contrast of abilities were remarkable. It something I don't usually take note of. That said, Banks is a masterful writer. The Reserve is a classic, very classic romance/tragedy. Leftist politics, Rampant Machismo, New York gentry, artists, zeppelins, murder, planes, and all in the gloaming of the Adirondacks. The book was so classic, I believe the ending fell into its place rather than found inspiration from the story. Still an easy masterpiece, this.
