Life and Death of Harriett Frean

by May Sinclair

Obviously written under the influence of James Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, this is a short but incisive analysis of English class and character of the Victorian era. Highly recommended.

The Hampdenshire Wonder

by J. D. Beresford

I\\\'ve never heard of this author, but this is a very impressive novel about a child with super-intelligence. Not a book that may amuse you, but a book that lets you think.

The Lunatic at Large

by J. Storer Clouston

One of the best modern picaresque novels. The author Clouston, though obscure, is a great craftsman. Recently I read THE MAN FROM THE CLOUDS, SIMON, THE SPY IN BLACK, and all of them are great reads.
