Ah the joys of "creating more shelf space" :)

I have never heard of this author before. What an interesting story it sounds. At least you have one book that doesn't need to be on your shelf any longer!


We-ell - I rather liked it. I'm not sure I want to get rid of it... In fact, at the moment I've given up on the cull and am just trying to sort them and stuff as many back as possible. I'm getting a bit sloppy about chronology too... :)

I have to say, I am intrigued by what I've read of Pierre Louÿs. Inventing Ancient Greek lesbian love poetry is impressive! I'd like to know more about his life.

Sounds great and what an excellent review. I had just abut heard of him in the context of fin de siecle decadence, but didn't know of this novel. Thanks.


It's very short and entertaining, definitely worth seeking out.
