It turns out I read this eight years ago. No memory of it, even with my 2010 review. This time around I read Quicksand for class. It was a fine alternative to dogdamn Billy Budd, which was on the syllabus, the third Melville novella of the semester. But. I didn't exactly love it. Helga Crane's dissatisfaction gets tedious after a while.
