BOOK REVIEW

KLUTZ by Henrik  Drescher
CHILDREN'S
Released: Sept. 1, 1996

"These slapstick foibles may scare very young readers, but those old enough to put the goofiness in context will eat up this cacophony of collage. (Picture book. 4-8)"

BOOK REVIEW

HUNGER AND THIRST by Daniela Kuper
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Sept. 1, 2004

"A little too heartfelt for its own good: Kuper's story suffers badly from plodding along too slowly, too obsessively, and from not really going anywhere in the end."
An impressionistic yet hardly fleet-footed debut about a Jewish girl coming of age in the '50s. Read full book review >
