About this deal

I have read about the profound influence this work has had on some people and I can see why it may have had such a significant impact on them, but although I admire poetical language and would usually value prose over plot, I have mixed feelings about this little book - hence the three star rating - and I'm rather surprised that I didn't derive more from it than I did. I can’t tell if this speaks to her family disowning her, or sticking by her through what they felt was a scarlet letter).

Although they had yet to meet, although he was still only words on a page, she declared him the love of her life. By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept" captures doomed and terminal love that will never fully die in a wonderful / painful manner. Despite taking place during the war, By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept has surprisingly little to do with the political spheres of the world at large, giving it a timelessness when read outside of its linear context, but arguably a tone-deafness when read within.

Un libro carente de línea argumental, a veces caótico, siempre exigente y extraordinario, y sí, por momentos, oscuro e inescrutable (¡Ay esa parte siete! Bought it as an avid the smiths and morrissey fan, but this book delivered so much emotional depth and resonated to strongly with me, that i would definitely recommend it.

So her life did not go the way she really wanted it to, and her longing for him permeates this book. It is the pile of dust under the bed, the dirty sheets that were never washed, that precipitate fatal action. Anyway, Karen bought this for me, and Elizabeth was interested in the book when she saw it (I think, I wasn't there) and she was interested to see what I thought of it. I think it is greatly over-rated and don't agree with some reviewers that it is the saddest book ever written.First in his poetry, then in their written correspondence, and through Barker's encouragement of Smart's own writing.
