Told By An Idiot: Rose Macaulay [Sep. 18th, 2010|05:44 pm]
Tony Grist
Told By An Idiot is a survey of the fads, fancies and follies of the period 1879-1923, lightly disguised as a family chronicle. Its rolling structure reminds me of Woolf's The Waves. It also shares something of that book's lyricism and melancholy. The differences are that Woolf is only really concerned with the inner life and Told By An idiot is funny.

I remember that - and I think that I've got a copy somewhere - not all my books are unpacked yet, and I keep having horrible moments of regret about whetehr and what I gave away before moving

I used to know where all my books were. Not any more. They've been through all sorts of upheavals.
