SEAN CONNERY by John Parker
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: Aug. 1, 1993

"Strong pages here and there, but many in Sunday supplement style. (Photographs)"

BIOGRAPHY
Released: April 30, 1993

"Biographical note; titles, dates, sizes, but (unfortunately) not the locations of the art. (Biography. 5- 10)"
``Published with the cooperation of the Henry Moore Foundation,'' a handsome book illustrated with some of Moore's preparatory sketches and photos of his own work plus many other excellent b&w photos: a brief, intelligent, and inviting introduction to a sculptor who has been called ``the most famous sculptor of the twentieth century.'' ``Most famous'' isn't equivalent to best, and Picasso, too, was a sculptor; still, Moore's reputation is as monumental as his splendid works of art.

BOOK REVIEW

Released: Sept. 1, 1997

"Written too soon after the event to stifle self-dramatization—or to touch on the tenuous relationship between actual law practice and classroom drilling—this will be of interest only to masochistic, prospective law students but may mislead them, since Harvard's enormous classes, hothouse ambiance, and rock-rigid first-year requirements are less than representative of current options in legal education."
Like the hero of the book-then-film, The Paper Chase, Turow got all frazzled—smoking, drinking, making and breaking psychiatric appointments—by his first year at Harvard Law School (1975-76), the year with all the tough courses, heavy pressures, competitive snarls, and think-like-a-lawyer angst.
