NY Times Review of The Builders

I have begun reading another Ellen Glasgow novel, The Builders, published in 1919. It was reviewed in the New York Times on November 2, 1919 in an article which also reviewed Jeremy by Hugh Walpole, Two Men by Alfred Ollivant, and several other novels, mostly long forgotten.

The Builders promises to be very good. Glasgow, although a relatively obscure novelist in today's world, has given the world throughout the whole of her work a fascinating social chronicle of Virginia.
