BOOK REVIEW

THE STOLEN CHILD by Keith Donohue
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: April 18, 2006

"Take that, Bilbo Baggins! Donohue's sparkling debut especially delights because, by surrounding his fantasy with real-world, humdrum detail, he makes magic believable."

ANGELS OF DESTRUCTION  by Keith Donohue
FICTION & LITERATURE

BOOK REVIEW

KEITH RICHARDS by Christopher Sandford
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: April 1, 2004

"Less than a glance at what drove 'the man death forgot.'"
Hollow if high-revved portrait of the Rolling Stones guitarist and songwriter from rock-music biographer Sandford (Mick Jagger, 1994, etc.). The only thing missing, tellingly, is his subject's voice. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

KEITH HARING: JOURNALS by Keith Haring
Released: July 1, 1996

"Fragmentary, not particularly enlightening, and lacking notes, these journals offer limited rewards even to the Haring aficionado. (illustrations, not seen) (Book-of-the-Month Club selection)"
Recorded in sporadic bursts at various points in his brief career, these journals attest more to the late artist's amazing industry than to his analytical or descriptive powers. Read full book review >
