As Gideon Lewis-Kraus notes, writing in the Los Angeles Times, James Wood is a writer who matters. People read him, people of the educated, monied, controlling part of the populace.

If the moon is full the sky empty and snow crisp the plateau glows hazy like a cloudy summer day soft and bright even when Luna is not close to whole so intense is the reflection.
