I bought this book because of repeated reference to it in Elizabeth Bear's novel Dust. Also, though I'd heard of Conrad Aiken I'd never read his work and I was curious about it. His imagery is so vivd that even when I'm not quite sure what he's saying I can see the picture, hear the sounds, feel the rain, smell the dust. The writing is beautiful.
