Here's a weird coincidence. I received this book in the mail at the same time that Laurel bought Jonathan Coe's The Winshaw Legacy. Both covers have a blonde woman pictured on them, and they look like they could be the same woman, portrayed by different artists. Creepy, eh?
|Are these two women the same?|
Sometimes there are books that you just read at the wrong time in your life. I think this was the wrong time for me to read this book. How could I relate to Dick Diver? (Besides the obvious fact that he has one of the most unfortunate names in Literature) I think that if I had read this book three years ago, or when I reread it three years from now, it will resonate better with me.
Or then again, maybe this is the absolute right time for me to read this book, and I don't want to admit it to myself.
I feel like I should say something about the book itself. Everything you hear about Fitzgerald's writing is true; he is a very pretty writer.
