    Wickford Point Kindle × à eBook cravenjobs.co.uk wickford download, point epub, Wickford Point ePUBThere was a paperback copy of this in the rental cabin we stayed in at Donner Lake in California a fifty year old paperback that sold for seventy five cents when new The book was originally published in 1939 What an amazing unknown gem This author did win the Pulitzer Prize once but I think he's largely forgotten now There isn't a lot of plot or action but the character not just a few but lots of them development and setting are marvelous This is a masterful intelligent erudite writer I feel fortunate to have found this and reading it was a great pleasure

    Wickford Point Kindle × à eBook cravenjobs.co.uk wickford download, point epub, Wickford Point ePUBFrom the frontispiece All the incidents and characters in this novel are entirely fictitious and no reference is intended to any actual person living or dead lolThis might be better than I was expecting No it wasn't

    Wickford Point Kindle × à eBook cravenjobs.co.uk wickford download, point epub, Wickford Point ePUBDespite finishing this book several days ago I find now a real longing for it I miss the characters wonky and shallow as they may be I need It seems to have satisfied a nostalgia for the era of my parents my passion for 1930 40s films where manners marriage and money are the main themes played out in a backdrop of flappers prohibition and keeping up appearances Every person we meet in this subtly satirical novel is fatally flawed either by being born into an 'important' family or not and trying too hard to fit in amongst ones 'betters' Every character is subjected to Maruand's cutting humor Their flaws make them so lovable I'm sure not everyone's cup of tea but a great read for clever dialog subtle satire class mockery sibling insanity dressed in New EnglandNew York cultural milieu in an era when the trust fund and the cut of your clothes meant everything

    Wickford Point Kindle × à eBook cravenjobs.co.uk wickford download, point epub, Wickford Point ePUBThis book was engaging but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone The story really grabs you but I could certainly see someone who likes action and excitement wouldn't be pleased There is definitly a large population of avid readers who would finish and just say what? nothing happenedFor the rest of us I would definitely recommend this book The character development is great it has to be since the plot isn't very activeThe romance was new as I typically avoid that at all costs but

    Wickford Point Kindle × à eBook cravenjobs.co.uk wickford download, point epub, Wickford Point ePUBThis book was a bit slow going at times It was 400 odd pages long and nothing ever really happens But it gave an interesting glimpse of America in the 1920s and 30s I had picked it up from the bargain shelves a while back and decided to finally sit down and read it It's not what I'd call a real page turner and overall I'm pretty sure I won't read it again but it was an enjoyable enough leisurely

    Wickford Point Kindle × à eBook cravenjobs.co.uk wickford download, point epub, Wickford Point ePUBI haven't previously read Maruand Pulitzer Prize winner and big time author in the 40s and this book was so much fun Witty writing hilarious if not slightly demented characters and major family dysfunction in a good way It does drag in parts and not a whole lot happens but I thoroughly enjoyed this
