VERGIL'S AENEID by Harold Bloom
POETRY

THE SECRET by Harold Robbins
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: June 1, 2000

"Sure to work for those sex-starved, homesick, hungry ghosts Robbins now writes for, who can grab only steam, not their cheeks or other parts, when the novel ends with 'a first-class blow job.'"
Following his death in 1997, Robbins's hard-driving, spiritually empty The Predators (1998) turns out not to be his farewell novel. Read full book review >
