Muddled plot & muddled writing.

Enjoyable love story with good literati gossipy tidbits (but not enough of those either)and too careful "surface" writing without the depth and understanding which may be found in an unauthorized bio. I closed it with more questions than it answered: what about Pinter's severed relationship with his son? Her children? More of the politics of their PEN demonstrations and relationships to people like Vaclav Havel. I will have to try the Billington bio of Pinter.

A compilation of pieces showcasing the passions for literature of forty authors. This is a book that is enjoyed in bits and pieces, and it contains both intriguing essays and recommendations for further reading.
