E.(Ethel) L.(Lilian) Voynich : The Gadfly

'What do you think of the "Gadfly"? I wrote what I thought to P.[presumably Sydney Pawling of Heinemann] who rejoined gallantly. But it comes to this, if his point of view is accepted, that having suffered is sufficient excuse for the production of rubbish.[...] I don't remember ever reading a book I disliked so much.'

Century: 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: Joseph Conrad      Print: Book
