Forklaringer
holly_golightly: Italy in the early 20th century is the backdrop for a romantic moment between a young Englishwoman and a young man she will never see again. Astute and witty and romantic, Forster's a fine writer, and I think this is his best.

Forklaringer
krazy4katz: Well written in a conversational style; recommended to me by several people of different backgrounds and it appears to be a even-handed account.

holly_golightly, kara.shamy
Forklaringer
holly_golightly: It's the long hot summer of 1876 in San Francisco. Can-can dancer Blanche's life is turned upside down when she meets cross-dressing, carefree Jenny Bonnet. And then she's murdered, and Blanche has to piece together not only her own life but the story of Jenny's death. Highly entertaining.
