Imprint[S.l.] : [s.n.]. 1925I
QuotationAnother thing about this room [in Miami]: it smells like some place where I have read a lot before, some place where I have had books. At the Savoy Hotel in Bournemouth I read Saint Mawr, by D. H. Lawrence, and got bored to death by Jude the Obscure. It may well be that the place merely reminds me of one of the front rooms in Douglaston, shaded and cool, where I have read God knows what.
