    • This is my third time reading this story and, while it has important things to say, it is not as good as I remembered. The beauty, warmth and sadness I remembered are all there, but the pace is a bit rushed, the themes of a new, worse era in publishing both bitter and desperate. In the character of the reclusive author, there are parallels to Salinger, of course, but also to Morrell, which does add poignancy. The lamenting of changes in the industry also reflects him, as well as the feelings of [...]




    • Morrell has penned a tale that tackles a host of intriguing subjects. These are all housed in the premise of a reclusive J.D. Salinger-like novelist. Years after acclaim and tragedy a manuscript arrives at a New York publishing house. This touches off a promising quest that ends up covering the loss of publishing's soul, the joy of writing, and what events and people make the muse. It is twinged with melancholy resembling the end of a spectacularly vibrant New England autumn. The author fits in [...]


    • An ode to Salinger (and a shot at the book biz) Every once in a while you come across a little gem. This novella is one & ironically, that is also its plot.In the introduction David Morrell writes about J.D. Salinger & his influence. Not just his prose but the mystique that grew around him after he withdrew from the world at large.¬†What follows is a short story about a reclusive author named R.J. Wentworth who wrote a seminal novel in the early 1960's. It was universally lauded, turning [...]


    • Normally I don't review single short stories, but I had to make an exception for David Morrell's "The Architecture of Snow." In this gem, Morrell uses J.D. Salinger's withdrawal from the world of writing and humans to give a loving farewell to the golden days of publishing. The way publishing is being run now, we are all the poorer for it.Samuel Carver is a legendary Maxwell Perkins-type figure in this story, renowned for being the editor of the fabled R. J. Wentworth, an author who stopped writ [...]

Once he guesses that the new work was created by a legendary and reclusive writer, life-changing wheels are set in motion.The critically acclaimed author of First Blood tackles the myths surrounding a writer like J.D. Salinger while skewering the book trade. The unavoidable melancholy surrounding the characters creates a bit of a dow [...]


    • Just before you jump into this book, its worth reading the forward, why David Morrell wrote the book. Very interesting. Its also worth mentioning ths is a "Short Story". I had hoped there were a number of others to follow, but alas no. So if your a faster reader than me, most probabaly. this will take a couple of hours.


    • Loved it! I thoroughly enjoy this author's writing style - clear, visual and emotional. This particular subject, the writer's life, has always intrigued me and his approach in this short story is delightful!


    • A bittersweet read I felt empathy for the editor's turmoil in his job, and would love to hang out with Mr. Wentworth! I wish it would have been longer too.
