3,5 sao. Có thể đã tốt hơn. Tôi đã hy vọng cao cho cuốn sách này. Đã buông xuống. Câu chuyện phía sau với bố và mẹ của Luis là gì? Tại sao điều đó không được giải thích? Và mục đích của phần kết là gì?
I didn't know much about FLW's life before reading this historical fiction. While I am more interested in his work, I was having trouble liking FLW or Mamah. It's a tragic story and finally going to get me to go do the Oak Park FLW tour but not up to 4 stars IMO.
Great tale, well written.
Like all writings by Dostoevsky, I loved these! The book took a long time to get through, but only because I wanted to savor each story. I would have to say that White Nights was probably my favorite story, but I'm looking forward to reading each story again sometime. Thanks, Bob, for loaning me the book and being so patient while I finished it.
It's The Kiss, only with the narrator made into more of a victim (wishful thinking?) and about ten years younger. This was my third Kathryn Harrison book, and my last. Again with the haunting lyrical prose. Again with the themes of power and powerlessness, and gentle cruelty and desire and submission. Again with the semi-autobiographical stance that makes you wonder, with an inner sense of "ick." After a few hundred pages, all of Harrison's ideas start to sound the same.
