Interesting assortment. Forster is for me the unusual case where I like the movies better than the books.
I loved Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit but then didn't like whatever it was that Winterson wrote after that. This one sounds intriguing, though.
It's a short book so not much of a chance to take. Actually, I listened to it as an audiobook.
I enjoyed Forster's literary voice a lot. He was quite experimental and playful in the book. A very intrusive narrator. When I was in Vermont visiting briseur
, I spent a pleasant morning reading a Forster biography that he had by his bedside. Interesting man who lived out most of his dreams on the page rather than in RL.
