A Glastonbury Romance,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Glastonbury Romance (Paperback)
This book came to my notice through the delightful little magazine called 'Slightly Foxed. A strong case was made for John Cowper Powys as an author and of the novels suggested I chose 'A Glastonbury Romance'. But regrettably I've got out of the habit of reading very long books and so I found the last part of this book heavy going. At times the book was quite electrifying and pleasurable but there were too many characters I grew to dislike. The book's background was a time of shortage of work and economic hardship and as such too like our own time for my taste.
