Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
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.

This is a great book and should be read by all. I should not be required to type a set amount of words.
