"Author, Author" begins with the Great Man's death, surrounded by worried servants (struggling to cope with his growing irrationality); then we are shown his remarkable life, including his friendship with the affable Punch illustrator George Du Maurier. The literary success and the American ex-pat James' social lionising by the cream of London society are strikingly conveyed, as is the man's sexual repression. The most powerful passages involve James' disastrous failure as a playwright, and this section crowns Lodge's achievement. Lodge fans may prefer his customary style, but there are riches here.
