BOOK REVIEW

THE SHIMMERING MAYA by Catharine Savage Brosman
ESSAYS & ANTHOLOGIES
Released: Sept. 1, 1994

"Rigorous, but as offputting as a fussy aunt; Brosman's white- glove treatment of morality and aesthetics will appeal chiefly to academics, didacts, and makers of sauces."
The examined life may be the only one worth living, but does it make compelling autobiography? Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Jan. 1, 1994

"And next time, with luck, will."
At their best, Laymon's cackling horrors (The Stake, 1991; Night Visions 7, 1989) are the nastiest around—sleek, black- humored, skirting (if not slipping over) the edge of pornoviolence. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

SAVAGE SHORTHAND by Jerome Charyn
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: Oct. 25, 2005

"Both a very uneven book and a very welcome one—a paradox Babel would have appreciated."
