Good call--also Robert W. Chambers' The King in Yellow.

I think Victorians were trying to get their heads around some of the emerging discoveries of the day and their stories have stood the test of time.

Think it, be it.

Not the best issue, but the only one I could get my hands on so far.

This book has been mentioned by @Aetas repeatedly, and it's a very good read indeed!

I'd say it's a coming-of-age story in the Netherlands of the 50s - with lots of references to classical music, the occupation under the Nazis, and a crime plot that's surprisingly intricate. It's a very pleasant read.

But I'm certainly not an expert, just enjoyed it a lot.

Sounds like something I could take with me to Tuscany on vacation.

Talking of The Dutch, I'm reading this and it is an uncomfortable read in places......
