    1. no stars as i did not finish anythingne of these early works really did it for me, for many different reasons including simple matters of taste. Putting them aside as life is simply too short and there are too many other wonderful things out there to read

    2. Powerful novel from the 1930s about Dahlberg-alter-ego Lorry and his mother, a hairdresser, and his experiences roaming the country with Mom and living in an orphans' home.
