“We read and re-read the six novels … and still we cannot understand why these miniature comedies of late eighteenth-century English manners are universal and timeless, played upon by an exquisitely phrased irony, with every word set like a semi-precious stone in its context, and a rare diamond here and there to punctuate the wisdom.” (Source: Introduction to Shorter Works)
