Alan RidingBernstein, a literary critic with strong roots in Europe, is evidently in no hurry. He writes in an elegant and deliberately meandering style, as if confident of hypnotizing the reader with his baroque sentences, explorations of neuroses, intricate descriptions of palaces and hovels and astute reflections on money and power, class and race. Conspirators brings to mind books written a century ago, which seems just right for the era it portrays.
