VERGIL'S AENEID by Harold Bloom
POETRY
Released: Dec. 16, 1996

"The series, so far, goes from the Aeneid to Angelou; each volume is loaded with colorful educational tools and offers a ready source of structured information. (Nonfiction. 12+)"
This is the first entry in the Bloom's Notes series, part of the Contemporary Literary Views Books; Bloom (The Western Canon, 1994, etc.) introduces Vergil, then steps back as various writers and academic experts past and present provide analyses of theme, character, and literary worth, mostly through excerpts from previously published material.

BOOK REVIEW

SEA BATTLES ON DRY LAND by Harold Brodkey
ESSAYS & ANTHOLOGIES
Released: April 15, 1999

"A test of Robertson Davies's plea that people's bad journalism should not be held against them."
Brodkey's self-involved, prolix prose style, which made his long-awaited Runaway Soul (1991) a sacred monster of recent fiction, fails badly to translate into readable essays on art, culture, politics, books, etc. After winning an early niche at the New Yorker with his fiction, Brodkey, like Updike and Barthelme, could always place an essay there—no matter how slight or puffed up the piece.

BOOK REVIEW

LEAD, SO I CAN FOLLOW by Harold Adams
MYSTERY THRILLER

"Adams's 1930s American Gothic is as gauntly effective as ever, and Carl's bride makes a charming sidekick, but their nuptial case is no more than a tangle of loose ends."

BOOK REVIEW

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 >

BOOK REVIEW

TRIAL BY FIRE by Harold Coyle
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: April 1, 1992

"It's a sensible and worthwhile compromise."
Hypothetical-war specialist Coyle (Bright Star, 1990; Sword Point, 1988) takes his recurring cast of characters to the Mexican border, where a coup d`Çtat to the south and the usual political bungling to the north make armed conflict inevitable. Read full book review >
