BOOK REVIEW

JEREMY THRANE by Kate Christensen
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Aug. 7, 2001

"Credible? Just barely. Fun? Immensely. As a chronicler of hip urban travails, Christensen (In the Drink, 1999) is first-rate."
A spirited take on the oft-told tale of a life falling apart, then patching itself together again: witty, humane, romantic, and just gossipy enough to keep you flipping pages. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

JAMES DEAN by Val Holley

"A biography by the numbers that never quite adds up. (16 pages b&w photos, not seen)"

JEREMY FISHER by Beatrix Potter
CHILDREN'S
Released: Feb. 18, 2011

"High production values and a story-centered design give this a leg up over flashier, more game-like e-books. (iPad storybook app. 4-8)"
