BOOK REVIEW

NON-FICTION
Released: Nov. 11, 2003

"Quite lluminating, and at times even entertaining (as when Gould offers his take on the four presidents most representative of the GOP's core). Just the thing for the 2004 election."
Or, what a long, strange trip it's been. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

THEODORE ROOSEVELT by Lewis L. Gould

BOOK REVIEW

MEDUSA'S GIFT by Lois Gould
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Sept. 1, 1991

"But what she's up to here—other than a freewheeling discussion of fame and a long drink of thick text—is anyone's guess."
Another sophisticated puzzler from Gould (Subject to Change, 1988, etc.) that uses ambiguous—though always rich—language and fragments of popular culture to toy with readers in a perversely pleasing way. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

SECOND LOVE by Judith Gould
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Dec. 8, 1997

"Gould's fourth hardcover (Too Damn Rich, 1992, etc.) is one of her sillier offerings, with lots of explicit sex mixing pain with pleasure, and orgasms with visions of flower gardens, like clichÇs in ecstasy."
Gould continues in the Sidney Sheldon tradition, this time with echoes of Windmills of the Gods: a widowed heroine, a hit- woman, and a group of ominously foreign bad guys. Read full book review >

"A fine celebration of the journeyman golfer that goes a long way toward putting the game back in perspective. (16 pages b&w photos, not seen)"
For every Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods, there is a platoon of Joe Hopefuls torturing themselves in qualifying school, the pro tour's proving ground and charnel house. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

FOREVER by Judith Gould
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Dec. 10, 1992

"It's the Sidney- Sheldon-gone-kinky approach, and here—as in Gould's others—it'll most likely work."
Escapist commercial fiction of operatic scale is Gould's niche (Never Too Rich, 1990, etc.), and, here, she claims her stake there again with a wild-ride-of-a-book about a woman who goes to incredible lengths to track down her grandfather's murderers. Read full book review >
