    1. William Mode Spackman Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the An Armful of Warm Girl book, this is one of the most wanted William Mode Spackman author readers around the world.

    2. A novel that fell out of an 1880s drawing room somewhere, from a man born in the wrong century. Doesn’t that title radiate? Doesn’t that title evoke an evening by the fire, cuddled up with your best lass, a plate of strong indigestible cheese on one table, a bottle of Iranian cognac on t’other? AAOWG is novel about the upper classes that doesn’t (seem) to be lampooning the upper classes, but a mere glimpse into the lives of these pampered doddering lunatics shows us a self-lampoon system [...]

These days I very much doubt that a novel chronicling the romantic forays of a banker named Romney is going to get anyone riled up. Which is a sh [...]

    5. Spackman seems to be an author who is periodically rediscovered. I was eager to like this but found it so tedious I could hardly stand to finish it and it is very short. The tone is off. It is presumably meant to be sophisticated and witty but did not work at all for me.

    6. I think Spackman is superb - a rake, indeed, and unrepentantly so but so are all his characters - female and male alike - and oh such prose!
