“He spent money and traveled the world.”

IMG_1779Being poorly read, I feel no shame at having never heard of the great Louis Bromfield, whose novels were the thing some 80 years back, and who seems to be known chiefly, now, for his ground…breaking agrarian experiments.

Spare a thought, if you will, for Lily Shane, Hattie Tolliver, Olivia Pentland, Mrs. Callendar, and Sabine Cane. I wish all my writing friends Bromfield’s success and their own immortality. May your works live forever, but not before they’ve had a chance to feed your mouth!

Now I’m wondering just who the English Galsworthy was. In the meantime, read this for me, will you?
