Should you ever want to sample a little bit of every writer and author of any consequence in American and English literature, I would readily suggest, "Once More, Miranda." At the turn of every page, we happen upon either a historic character, such as Samuel Johnson, the brilliant but unruly and outspoken author of the first Dictionary of the English Language, or a style of writing long since abandoned in this day of pulp romance and penny-ante horror: classical Dickens abounds through out the story,and perhaps if you look hard enough you can find the clever placement of Chauncer and Thomas Moore as well. The characters are wonderful and witty, the story line is refreshing while being delightfully classic. This is one story, once started, that one simutaneously can not put down while wishing it would never end. Bravo to Ms. Wilde for this wonderful novel.
