You are probably right. It would be interesting to compare to one of his better novels in the original feuilleton. Still, I fail to see how he can do anything about the nauseating Hector. The whole Burma story could be cut without the novel being any the poorer for it, for example.


We would be reminded much, much less frenquently about Hector's character and attributes if it was a single novel.
I agree with you about the Burma story - it read like a seperate short story he'd just squeezed in. Which makes sense as he'd have been paid, I assume, to make the story fit a set number of editions.


Yes. I was so happy when that woman died. I had been praying for it for quite some time.
