I love Amanda Cross. I love her intelligence and wit. With no other writer do I make as many notes of sentences I save just for the enjoyment of reading them again. Having said that, while there are many things about this book that I appreciated, I didn't enjoy it as much as others. To start with the positive, I agree with another reviewer who said "It brings together themes of feminism, literature, relationships and aging with a mystery format." And that I appreciated. I appreciated reading about the journeys of all of these women. Now - the challenges. To me this book felt choppy. I couldn't understand why I had difficulty keeping the people straight - especially since there weren't that many people. I think my reaction comes from the nature of the evolution of the characters, multiple things that turned out to be different than the initially appeared, and the use of a section devoted to a memoir written by one of the characters - hence part of the book came from a totally different viewpoint. I think part of my response came from needing to keep changing who exactly was at the center of this story. To give a concrete example, I drew a genogram based on what I thought I was reading. Partway through the book I redrew the genogram with a different person on the center of the page. Finally, as can often happen when writers don't want to show their hand, we could have learned more about a key players in the story. Oh - it is almost an afterthought to say that this was definitely not a classic mystery. This was a book that was primarily telling about Kate's conversations with several women and what she learned from these conversations. ( )

Cross, Amanda, The Players Come Again, Writing as Amanda Cross, English professor Carolyn Heilbrun introduced her female professor sleuth in 1964, endowing Kate Fansler with a gift for urbane conversation, sophisticated taste, literary expertise and a mind for murder. When Kate Fansler is offered the exciting prospect of writing a biography of Gabrielle Foxx, the obscure and enigmatic wife of a great modernist author, she accepts. But what she discovers when she meets three charming women connected with the Foxx family since childhood is a veil of secrecy that hides a fantastic pattern of events, a shocking secret that fifty years have done nothing to defuse, and a strange truth that she can never reveal. Strangely enough, there are no clues for the readers, and the idea of a murder is so much an afterthought... ( )

"The sweetness of this content overflowing runs down the walls of my mind, and liberates understanding. Wander no more, I say; this is the end. The oblong has been set upon the square; the spiral is on top. We have been hauled over the shingle, down to the sea. The players come again." — Virginia Woolf, The Waves
