Turning Interiors Into Vivid Literary Characters

Today architectural journalist Alexandra Lange takes a look at the novel Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, pointing out that author Helen Simonson does a masterful job of turning the book's interiors into formidable characters. Lange excerpts the most compelling descriptions, which include the following: "An attic extension with a brick-arched picture window presented a sort of flamenco wink at the seaside town that sprawled below." It's worth a read. [Design Observer]
