Reviewer Louis Bayard worries that William Goyen will continue to be lost “among the boldfaced names he fraternized with.” If passages like the one he lifts from Goven’s The House of Breath for a review of Clark Davis’s biography It Starts with Trouble are any indication, Goven deserves at least an occasional italic or custom CSS:
Follow me |
And then I walked and walked in the rain that turned half into snow and I was drenched and frozen; and walked upon a park that seemed like the very pasture of hell where there were couples whispering in the shadows, all in some plot to warm the world tonight, and I went into a public place and saw annunciations drawn and written on the walls.
Louis Bayard provides a good balance of quoted passages and caution about a certain “Western Gothic” style.
