BOOK REVIEW

GOULD by Stephen Dixon
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Feb. 1, 1997

"Extremely readable and clever work, but the pages don't add up to much except sex and more sex, described in clinical detail and with clinical dispassion, featuring a cast of characters who seem incapable of thinking about anything other than their bodies and their appetites."
Stream-of-consciousness fiction, about one Gould Bookbinder, a would-be writer, and his many girlfriends, from the prolific author of Interstate (1995), Frog (1991), etc. The story divides into two novellas, ``Abortions'' and ``Evangeline,'' but they are of a piece, chronicling the relationships Gould experiences from the 1950s onward.

BOOK REVIEW

BOOK REVIEW

Released: Nov. 12, 1995

"Cohen sees Dodgson finally as a talented, upright, melancholy figure, but does not fully integrate Carroll into this protean man. (135 illustrations, not seen)"
Cohen, the editor of Carroll's herculean correspondence, succeeds with the man's Victorian character—both the academic and the eccentric elements—but misses the point of Carroll's pointless nonsense. Read full book review >
