Aptly, now that we have just published Nigel Jackson's essay on The Empty Room, a review of the same novel surfaced from the then-influential magazine The Saturday Review. It was written by a young and talented American novelist, and it seemed so indicative of a certain way of thinking in its time and place -- New York, three weeks before Pearl Harbor -- that reprinting it was irresistible. You will find it, appropriately, on the Old News page of the website. (I suspect that the "Brenson" who made the etching for the Saturday Review was Theodore Brenson, who had just emigrated to America from Latvia and later became an Abstract Expressionist.)
