    What a refreshing change to read something so vastly different from anything written nowadays Yes, this book is extremely dated, totally immersed in the language and outlook of the 1920s, but that s much of its charm And what a delightfully bizarre menagerie of improbable exotic characters Wilder has presented here So strange and unbelievable are they that I doubt he could have just imagined them, truth being stranger than fiction They must have really existed, if not individually, then organically, as composites the last remaining artifacts left behind following the destruction of empires in The Great War Apart from their shared connection to a bygone world they each possess some unique attribute that makes them exceptional and intriguing.Wilder draws a parallel between these displaced characters and the demise of the gods of classical antiquity, after they too were swept away by the rise of Christiani...

    Ironic and self ironic, unapologetically literary, urbane and heady Reads, for the most part, like Woolf or Forster, occasionally reaching wry delights When the bourgeoisie discovered that she was accepting invitations there was a tumult as of many waters This is a book where you get the feeling that the trees, as it were, are important than the forest And then, after weaving this glitter...

    It must have been the influence of high school where we were required to read Our Town and The Bridge of San Luis Rey that gave me the idea that familiarity with Wilder was necessary for a liberal education In any case, I went on to read his Ides of March, and wasn t impressed, and...

    Gloom at the Top A polite New Englander somehow penetrates a top hat society of aristocrats, pale poets and princesses, and Cardinals in Rome, who are really hapless, caught forever in the coils of wealth and privilege, able to escape daily toil, but not vacuity They are rather ironically known as the Cabala Note this book has nothing to do with Jewish mysticism Nothing Our narrator describes a series of Cabala members individually and we learn how they are connected. Having money is tough, you know You wind up having to keep the hoi polloi away from the gates But they still might get in So best bring back kings, divine right, and the Almighty Church How are you going to do that Don t let them catch wind of it Well, you might form a secret group of the best people i.e richest and most conservative and talk incessantly, so seriously unserious Whether they have really created such a group is doubtful The word cabala ties t...
