3.0 out of 5 stars Gentle humour and elegant prose, 3 Feb 2011
This review is from: And Even Now (Paperback)
I've always been fond of Max. I like his gentle, sometimes sly humour, his wit, his often elegant prose. It's true that there's some occasional feeble space-filling stuff here, but at his best Max is still delightful, as in 'No 2 The Pines', 'William and Mary' (poignant, and sweetly written in places), the second half of 'A Relic' (nicely self-mocking) and 'Laughter' (full of insights). If you're prepared to put up with the over-padded pieces (affliction of so many professional essay-writers), I would recommend this for the rest of the contents - intelligent, funny, impeccably written, suffused with old-fashioned charm.
