Finished The Way We Live Now, started Meredith's Diana of the Crossways. We're in the same world of wealthy people marrying for money and speculating in railway shares. It's not my favourite environment.

Do I like Meredith? Not sure yet. His style is ornate and eccentric in a way that reminds me of the further reaches of high Victorian architecture- William Burges for instance. His contemporaries thought him a great novelist and their descendants haven't so much downgraded as ignored him.
