Told By An Idiot: Rose Macaulay

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.
