Read in January, 1981

The title is wonderful.
The prose is long and seems dated. This is a very slow read but does capture a period of turmoil in the 20th century. I read it for a book group years ago, and often cursed the member who suggested it. My recollection was that we had to skip a month and most members of the group didn't finish it.

Thomas Wolfe
“It seems to me that in the orbit of our world you are the North Pole, I the South--so much in balance, in agreement--and yet... the whole world lies between.”
