Writing an entire first draft in three months would be impressive even for a rambling, thinly veiled autobiography set in the present day. But Baker’s novel is a period piece set in Providence, R.I., circa 1936. It’s also got a tightly wound plot that doesn’t reveal its hand until the final pages. Add to that a perfumed vocabulary inherited from the Victorians—a well-placed “leonine” on the first page convinced me that I was in good hands—and you’ve got a finished product that belies the speed at which it was conceived.
Now reading this.
