bookshelves: to-read
Read in September, 2009

I'm finally ready to read this after having finished Portrait of a lady, Wings of the Dove, and three other shorter works by James. Toibin's writing was oppressively static when I first tried it, but now that I've rendered myself impervious to unceasing fogs, unverifiable rumors, and knotted syntax, I'm suddenly more curious as to how Toibin elucidates the stagnant mystery that is the making of the over-rated one.

Bob RE: James...Yes, usually less is more, but dusting is always overrated.
