Evidence

"I am reading Gide"s memoirs, very disappointing I think, so far; I have found hardly anything that pleased me except the marble that had been dropped into the hole in the door. I read Jesting Pilate and liked it. I have tried Arabia Deserta for the fiftieth time, but can"t manage it. Yet no doubt it is a more monumental work than Jesting Pilate."
