The Guilty River by Wilkie Collins, Fiction, Classics I acknowledge, at the outset, that misfortune has had an effect on me which frail humanity is for the most part anxious to conceal Under the influence of suffering, I have become of enormous importance to myself In this frame of mind, I naturally enjoy painting my own portrait in words Let me add that they must be written words because it is a painful effort to me since I lost my hearing to speak to anyone continuously, for any length of time I have also to confess that my brains are not so completely under my own command as I could wish For instance, I possess considerable skill for an amateur as a painter in watercolors But I can only produce a work of art, when irresistible impulse urges me to express my thoughts in form and color The same obstacle to regular exertion stands in my way, if I am using my pen I can only write when the fit takes me sometimes at night when I ought to be asleep sometimes at meals when I ought to be handling my knife and fork sometimes out of doors when I meet with inquisitive strangers who stare at me As for paper, the first stray morsel of anything that I can write upon will do, provided I snatch it up in time to catch my ideas as they fly New Download Books The Guilty River by Wilkie Collins, Fiction, Classics by Wilkie Collins – johndore.co.uk

    I m pretty sure I ve now read all the great Wilkie Collins books, cause all that seem to left are formulaic crappy stories like this one Read Moonstone or Armadale and don t bother with this one, Haunted Hotel or Miss Mrs All in one collection in this copy.
