Descripción del libro usado "A favourite of the gods"


"Vibrant with an awareness of people and their manners and the countries that shape them."-Sylvia Brownrigg.

Henry James''s theme of the New World (naïve, upright, puritanical) confronting the Old (steeped in sophisticated and unscrupulous charm) is here explored by a novelist who has witnessed two world wars. Her protagonist is Constanza, a beautiful Italian-American pagan born to privilege and happiness-a seeming "favourite of the gods." But in the years of her maturity she becomes aware of what she lacks-a purpose and a part. Who am I, she asks, and what is it I can do? "This," writes Bedford, "is not a poor little rich girl''s plaint. It is the quest that lurks within every human creature fortunate to lift its head above the daily grind."

"Bedford''s genius is for writing about people. [Her] excellence is immortal, her career one of great distinction in literature."-Peter Levi.
