"The Golden Bowl
, by Henry James. I should have read all of James's major works, because I like difficult stuff, but for some reason I have a deficit here. I am really embarrassed about this, and because James is much beloved by a lot of serious high-art types of my acquaintance, when it comes up I go suddenly deaf for fear I will be found out.

and The Ice Storm
