Thanks for the intelligent review. City Boy is, of course, an excellent book. I like your line: "...simultaneously chatty and serious." Exactly right.

Logan and I are reading City Boy right now so I'm not reading your review yet but I was amazed that Bowen was one of his favorites. I've never heard of Rosamund Lehman or Henry Green but I must find Nothing immediately. Oy, more for the list.


In the middle of this myself.

I always find myself surprised by how seductive White's autobiographical writing is. I feel immediately at ease and comfortable and unaware that something moving and profound will eventually hit me. It always strikes a chord in me (as did My Lives and his great trilogy of autobiographical novels, particularly the final one The Farewell Symphony).

I recently realized I've been reading White for 20 years, which is as long as I've been out and as long as I've been writing.
