Ploughshares Post: Nightwood, Revisited


I've always been fascinated by Djuna Barnes. And perhaps a little intimidated, too. A while back I challenged myself to finish Nightwood and report back to the Ploughshares community.

Read my mixed review here. And then consider giving the book a peek, mostly because I'd love to chat with you about your experience. I'm still mulling.

  1. My sister had a name similar to Djuna Barnes, but in any case appeared in the NYC phone book as D. Barnes. With some regularity she received calls from Djuna Barnes fans or aspiring writers. One of them asked her to edit his book. She said, "Sure." And probably did. Happily, though she is not Djuna Barnes, she is a good editor.
