BOOK REVIEW

NON-FICTION
Released: Oct. 3, 2006

"It's difficult to imagine the audience for this philosophy: Cultural revolutionaries can turn to franker polemics, while self-described conservatives will be unnerved by Sullivan's anti-foundationalism."
True conservatism recoils from the fundamentalist obsession with virtue and natural law, but embraces a minimalist view of government that allows a maximum of economic and lifestyle liberty. Read full book review >

NON-FICTION
Released: Sept. 11, 1995

"Sullivan makes some good points, but the subject demands far more passion, logic, and straightforwardness than are evident here. (First printing of 50,000)"
The New Republic's editor offers a leaden analysis of current political stances on homosexuality, culminating in a prescription for solving America's ``homosexual problem.'' Sullivan divides the field of disputants into four camps: The ``prohibitionists'' are the Catholic Church and everyone else who would suppress homosexual acts on grounds of natural law; the ``liberationists'' are the self-styled queer activists; the ``conservatives'' are those who can tolerate gays privately but refuse to promote public acceptance of homosexuality; and the ``liberals'' are those who would legislate virtually all aspects of public and private life to protect the civil rights of gays and other minority groups.

BOOK REVIEW

WASTE by Andrew F. Sullivan
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: March 15, 2016

"The narrative isn't particularly linear, and all the characters prove beyond redemption. But Sullivan's bile gives the story a definite grisly appeal and is guaranteed to make you feel better about wherever you happen to live."
To enter Sullivan's (All I Want Is Everything, 2013) first novel is to spend quality time with some of the worst people in the world. While the story turns on a plot of death and revenge, Sullivan's true subject is the decay, human and otherwise, in the backwoods town of Larkhill, Ontario.Read full book review >
