Division Street

Many of the best poems in Division Street are full of art but bereft of ego, not just because Mort has more important subjects to dwell on, but also because writing is a waiting game and authorship is always deferred.


My Boyfriend Barfed in My Handbag . . . and Other Things You Can't Ask Martha

Kerr has a way of handling these questions with such forcefully breezy aplomb that hidden within each answer, there is a greater piece of advice: Don't be intimidated by having to solve embarrassing problems, because they happen to everyone. You can manage.


Wake: A Novel

This novel remembers a time of difficulty and examines it in a new, refreshing way.


The Secret Life of Bees

While I really enjoyed The Secret Life of Bees, on closer consideration it’s very much a flawed novel, but still one worth reading if one takes its flaws into account.


Bark: Stories

Though the best of the stories leave a delightful aftertaste, there’s often not enough to chew on. Still, it’s better to be left wanting more.


Prayers for the Stolen

Clement has written their story in a world of her own making, and in doing so she has realized a level of empathy that is absent in the news stories and bloody headlines that mark these otherwise forgotten tragedies.


Romance Is My Day Job: A Memoir of Finding Love at Last

Ultimately, Patience’s heroism lies in her extraordinary optimism about the male sex despite the abundance of evidence she encounters to the contrary.


My Name Is Resolute

Nancy E. Turner is a master storyteller who steeps this page-turning saga in well-researched history of the 18th century.


Runner
Bookreporter : Runner (February 21, 2014)

I spent most of the novel waiting for a net to drop over Dryden and Rachel. It does, for a moment or two, but Lee is just getting started. By book’s end, your heart will be in your mouth or on the floor, everywhere it’s not supposed to be.


A Burnable Book
Bookreporter : A Burnable Book (February 21, 2014)

The best part of A Burnable Book, apart from the characters, is the mystery itself. First, it’s a mystery about a book --- what reader doesn’t love that? Second, thanks to the cast of characters, the book passes through so many hands that even the people who know the truth about the book aren’t aware of what’s happening.


And Sons: A Novel

This is a terrific social comedy that also wants to be a meaningful postmodern book about fatherhood, and if it sometimes overreaches, we sense that Gilbert won’t mind.


Bark: Stories

Lorrie Moore is an artist who knows the power of her art, and understands that the reader – as much as the writer – must give themselves over to the experience of the story.


Honor's Knight

Rachel Bach simply outdoes herself with this one and whatever anticipation, I had was simply blown away by the awesomeness of this story.


Sitcom: A History in 24 Episodes from I Love Lucy to Community

“Sitcom” will entertain and inform readers, especially those who want to learn more about a favorite series or a great show they’ve missed. With more and more sitcom reruns available on outlets such as Hulu and Netflix, there’s plenty of time to get to know a few more names.


The Sixth Extinction

“The Sixth Extinction” is a bold and at times desperate attempt to awaken us to this responsibility.
