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.

Towers of Trebizond is her most famous book. Also her last. It came out in the mid 50s.

I suppose Grandpa might have enjoyed her work. She's very interested in religion- in a detached, uncommitted sort of a way- as was he. She's also very funny.
