Evidence

"La Silence de la Mer by ""Vercors"" (Schlumberger?) was given me by Raymond Mortimer yesterday and read without much admiration though with plenty of sympathy: published secretly under the Nazis in France. Read also too slow a story by Giono of the coming of Pan: it quickens at the end where human beings and animals dance together, with regrettable results [...] Read too in Illusions Perdues [...] and in Gide"s Journal [...] Gide aroused my envy by reading, reading, but if I kept a journal I too should appear to have read, read a lot."
