In the News!

Well, I am giddy with delight this morning. Laura Grimes of The Oregonian wrote a great follow-up piece to her story last week about struggling to read (or not) The Ambassadors by Henry James. Both are great stories that stirred up quite a reaction from Henry James's fans and foes. The exciting thing for me is that, in today's story, she mentions this blog, writing:
Rose City Reader . . . is a machine when it comes to recounting her reactions to reading books. She describes The Ambassadors as "typical James sludge" and that the author's "talent reminds me of artists capable of painting portraits on grains of rice."
I'm giddy. Just giddy.

Obviously The Ambassadors is a must read, and that newspaper woman knows a good critic when she reads one. :-)
