To Mrs. Penniman

Reading now: Washington Square by Henry James

Dear Mrs. Penniman,

Please stop trying to convince Catherine to marry Morris Townsend. He is clearly just in it for the money. His own sister even said so. Your stupidity is really starting to bother me. I'm not sure why Dr. Sloper even lets you live in his house. You're messing everything up.



  1. I like how you pen letters to characters in books, insightful in it's own way. :)

  2. Oh thanks, Eric. Usually I do it when I'm especially mad at a character. It helps to write them an angry letter.

  3. I haven't read this book yet, but I love the 1940s movie with Olivia de Havilland as Catherine and Montgomery Clift as Morris...I think it's called The Heiress.

  4. Byebee, I read that on Wikipedia they made two movies, the first called The Heiress and the second Washington Square in 1997. Thanks for letting me know you liked it, I'm going to seek it out after I finish the book!
