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

THE LONG-NOSED PIG by Keith Faulkner
ANIMALS
Released: March 1, 1998

"All the protuberant pop-ups, some bright colors, and lively art—the dirt smudges that begrime the pig are cleverly made from brown fingerprints across the pink paint surface—keep everything trotting merrily along. (Pop-up. 2- 6)"
A companion to The Wide-Mouthed Frog (1995) that is not as funny, but fans of the first book will want to get their hands on this one to see what pops out at them. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

WILLIAM FAULKNER: AMERICAN WRITER by Frederick R. Karl
Released: May 22, 1989
