No. But I may look it up. You recommending it?



Naaah not one of his best (in fact he more or less disowned it according to Shelden's biography).

I think the original run was under 1000 in about 1935.

I have all his others in first edition except Burmese Days. A relative has that and it's a bequest.

Good book.

Liked it.

Hard to accept the linguistic and cultural anachronisms.... ' I welcome your input' for example.

And, did  black slaves back then have the perspectives ascribed to them? Did whites? I dunno.

But books are written for readers now, not then, or Hilary Mantel would have been burned or butchered.

Thought provoking.


Good book.

Thanks for recommending it.

Kindle at a pound or two, these 21st c things are great!
