Review of Jim Crace's "Harvest"

So my review of Jim Crace’s new novel, Harvest, appeared Sunday in the Dallas Morning News, here. I liked the book, mainly for its style more than its subject or story, which was taken to task in an interesting review in The New Republic, here. (Note: I only read that review after mine had been published, maintaining a policy of not reading reviews of books I’m reviewing until after mine is done, so I won’t be corrupted.) Apparently Crace has threatened to “retire,” though that’s kind of amusing, seeming somewhat overwrought and precious. But that doesn’t change my mind about the book. It’s graceful and memorable in its own way.
