Happy Holidays!

Jennifer (jhaltenburger) Fanny Burney's "Evelina," Somerset Maugham's "Theatre" or John Galsworthy's "A Man of Property"?

Jennifer (jhaltenburger) Not until after I nominated it. I probably read theatre 20 years ago, just recently started rereading Maugham, so I kind of picked one at random and nominated it. Then I read its description and thought, wait a minute, didn't I see Annette Bening in a movie like that a few years ago? I'd completely forgotten the plot of the book and seeing the movie didn't jog it at the time. Now I'll have to rewatch the movie too!
