With reference to your previous comment, for Alain de Bottons book on what makes buildings beautiful thats very easy as beauty is always in the eye of the beholder.

There are rules, which architects spend approx 5 years learning (classical orders, truth to materials and many others), many then break, combine and mash these up rules to create their buildings, always with the client who ultimately must pay for the building.

what a delightful review of Death Comes to Pemberley. sadly, it does not incline me to read the book although has it narrated by Rosalyn Landor, which is a Good Thing.


Thank you for your kind note. I've enjoyed reading your fine reviews and browsing your library.

Until 2 months ago we were neighbors. I lived on 85th and York and few things were more pleasant than to take a book over to Carl Schurch Park at the end of the day to read and people watch. I miss the City and am plotting my return in a few years.

Best Regards, Alan

I do have the McPherson --- and envy your trip, by the way. My DH does not travel. What I meant to say before lunch is that if you didn't see the 3 hour + interview with SF on C-Span, you should google it and watch. I have most of it to do. The interviewer is Brian ???. Oh phooey. Never mind the google; here it is!
I'm trying to finish the Mitford girls' letters today in Suz's readathon, so I'll be back later to chat again.
