BOOK REVIEW

LEE by Tito Perdue
Released: Aug. 15, 1991

"A promising debut."
A first novel that follows an old man, a kind of Old Testament prophet full of books and anger at the age, as he wanders— sometimes violently—through the modern urban world and into his own past. Read full book review >

SAVING CECIL by Lee Mims
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: April 8, 2015

"Mims' heroine (Trusting Viktor, 2014, etc.) and supporting cast flesh out a rich crew of characters, although Cecil's prominence in the title is a bit too much of a spoiler."
Drilling for natural gas gets a geologist in deep trouble when she finds a body near the drill site. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

TRUSTING VIKTOR by Lee Mims
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Feb. 8, 2014

"Although geologist Mims (Hiding Gladys, 2013) writes with professional authority, she could have established her heroine as a specialist in a man's world without burdening readers with so many scientific details—or undercutting Cleo's self-sufficiency by obliging her to be rescued again and again."
Underwater intrigue, offshore drilling and onshore romance enliven a scientist's days and nights. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

HIDING GLADYS by Lee Mims
Released: Jan. 8, 2013

"Mims, a former field geologist who clearly knows mining protocol, equipment and land resources, seasons Cleo's debut with too many Perils-of-Pauline impediments and too much romantic folderol."

BOOK REVIEW

LEE KRASNER by Gail Levin
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: March 22, 2011

"Levin deftly connects Krasner's biography to the social and political upheaval of the time. Her long experience in the art world gives insight into the landscape of 20th-century artists, art dealers and museums."

BOOK REVIEW

LEE & ELAINE by Ann Rower
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: March 19, 2002

"The upshot: She doesn't have much of a story, and neither do we."
Rower's second, as dismal as its predecessor (Armed Response, 1995), trades the former's West Coast trappings for the Hamptons as the artist/writer narrator tries desperately to turn the dead wives of rival painters William de Kooning and Jackson Pollock into posthumous friends—and straighten out her own life in the bargain.

CILLA LEE-JENKINS by Susan Tan
CHILDREN'S
Released: March 28, 2017

An aspiring author grapples with change in her family. Read full book review >
