Considering how "different" his other novels are, this is even more astounding. I envy those who read it for the first time; especially those who understand the nuances of European history and of the English language. When i first read it as a boy (in a dusty small indian town - Trichy) i could barely speak English. But every re-reading makes me appreciate the taut "editing" and the smart flow of the story. And the suave and thoroughly English witticisms. ("Surely", I exclaimed , "while you're above ground, hell wants its master")
With all that blowhard editorializing aside, my purpose here is to put some (cognate) keywords so that the "coming generations" might "discover" it.
Historical Romance (yep... "reaching")
