Re-Reading Books

'Cold Comfort Farm'

I read this novel some years ago after seeing the movie made from it. I loved it then. And I loved it again when I read it this time! It is so funny, satisfying, and full of quirks. It would probably be even more so if you were familiar with the type of novel it is a parody of.

Editorial reviews from Amazon: A hilarious parody of D. H. Lawrence and Thomas Hardy’s earthy, melodramatic novels.

When you reread a classic, you do not see more in the book than you did before; you see more in you than there was before. Clifton Fadiman
