Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The writing style is uncommon. The characters are uncommon. As a break from what we generally read today this book is peerless. Within the relm of a fictionalization of exceptional circumstances "The House of the Profit" shows us human nature at what we will regard as it's true and real levels. The discovery of this novel again increases one's desire to read more from Mr. Auchincloss.
