THE HERE AND NOW by Gregg Easterbrook
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Dec. 11, 2002

BOOK REVIEW

TIGHT SHOT by Kevin Allman
Released: March 22, 1995

"It's too late for another rewrite, but maybe first-novelist Allman can fix it all in the sequel."
Hollywood columnist Kieran O'Connor, who says he specializes in ``event coverage,'' yearns for the front page, and it looks like he's finally made it when he hears a pop from the ladies' room at the Women in the Industry banquet and goes inside to find producer Monica Slezak, who'd been at the point of presenting an award to her colleague and husband, Gregory Slezak, dead on her throne.
