BOOK REVIEW

MOSS HART by Jared Brown
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: July 1, 2006

Pedestrian biography utterly lacking the wit and charm that made the writer/director one of mid-20th-century Broadway's most beloved figures. Read full book review >

FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT by Frances A. Davis
MUSIC AND THE ARTS
Released: Oct. 31, 1996

ZIN! ZIN! ZIN! A VIOLIN by Lloyd Moss
CHILDREN'S

FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT by Susan Goldman Rubin
MUSIC AND THE ARTS

BONES GATHER NO MOSS by John Sherwood
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Jan. 1, 1995

"As usual, Sherwood (Creeping Jenny, 1993, etc.) doesn't shirk the plot complications, though botanical amateurs may find those last revelations at once shrill, unconvincing, and anticlimactic."
Stricken with guilt and pity over the disappearance of Jane Greenwood, the acquaintance she recommended to take the job of cataloguing the late Paul-Henri de Fleury's samples of French wildflowers, Celia Grant agrees to travel to the ChÉteau de Fleury herself to goad the police into action—and drops into the maw of a famille de l'enfer.
