Drawers of Cutlery

I completed Lost Illusions Tuesday and was left with a simmering dread. Lucien's saga continues with The Harlot High and Low and there are no copies at my immediate digestion, not locally. Oh, I looked. The project of Gissing in New Grub Street has an added context when viewed through the prism of Balzac's observations concerning the Fourth estate, alleged objectivity and the grist of commerce which sullies everything. I had to chuckle earlier today viewing Pandora's Box by G.W. Pabst at the promises Schon makes about the production's success, he is the editor-in-chief of the city newspaper, after all.
