Virginia Woolf su Henry James: "I am reading Henry James…and feel myself as one entombed in a block of smooth amber", Teddy Roosevelt su Henry James: "A little emasculated mass of inanity", Mark Twain su Jane Austen: "Every time I read Pride and Prejudice, I want to dig her up and hit her over the skull with her own shin-bone", e Capote su Faulkner: "He was a great friend of mine.
