Reading Experience:

Thank you for your appreciative letter. I am glad to have it. I did not say that 'A High Wind' would be the best book of the autumn. As for Powys, he is a friend of mine, but I could not get on with his book, and so I have said nothing about it. I think that you have touched its weak spot in saying that it is too abnormal.
