I loved this book which is the interior monologue of a man whose public and private personas are entirely different. It brought to mind the oft-quoted lines from Walter Scott’s poem Marmion: “Oh, what a tangled web we weave / When first we practise t ...more

I can’t say this book is bad but I can’t say it’s beautiful either.
