I'm about finished with Bleak House. Why? The Brahmins in American Tongues told me to read it.
What else have they got to live for? Sex, probably. Well, undoubtedly sex, they keep that very quiet. But, I know you don’t like Dickens.
No, I don’t like Dickens. Yes, he’s post-Austen. Jane Austen, of course, is the greatest novelist in the English language..
Well, she’s a great novelist, but not the greatest.
I’m a Dickens man.
Well, Dickens is messy, George.
Of course he’s messy, but he’s lively.
He only wrote one great book which is Pickwick Papers.
I would put that way down compared to Bleak House.
