"Started reading David Copperfield. My goodness, the first two chapters are perfect. I don't believe there's ever been anything better in the novel--& that includes Proust & Tolstoy. One dreads the moment of failure, for Dickens always sooner or later fails."
Graham Greene, letter to Catherine Walston, Feb. 15-24, 1959
