jburlinson on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
Very curious situation. I read The Real Life of Sebastian Knight twice (some 10 years apart) and I read Bend Sinister once, some five years ago, when I bought this book. Yet I remember virtually nothing about the former, other than a vague recollection of some problem regarding the identity of the narrator, Knight and/or Knight's brother. In the case of Bend Sinister, on the other hand, I remember nearly everything in great detail, even to the point of being able to visualize the location on the page of a particular sentence. "Speak, Memory," and tell me of your ways!
