Picks of the Week





Published: 2010-03-26T13:01:12-04:00

 



THE LEVELS, by Sean Cregan

2010-03-26T13:01:12-04:00

(originally posted on February 21, 2010) It's a new name, a new style, and a new publisher for the man once and still known as John Rickards, and I think the change on all writerly fronts is absolutely the right...



THE BELIEVERS, by Zoe Heller

2010-03-26T13:00:39-04:00

(originally posted on February 21, 2010) On the one hand, I wish I had read this book when it came out in hardcover. On the other hand, I'm glad I waited because THE BELIEVERS demands total attention and now was...



The Spellmans Strike Again, by Lisa Lutz

2010-03-26T13:00:06-04:00

(originally posted on February 21, 2010) What do you mean this is the end of the Spellman Saga? Don't we get to find out what happens to Rae in college, or whether Isabel will stay the maturity course, or if...



212, by Alafair Burke

2010-03-26T12:59:20-04:00

(originally posted on February 21, 2010) If you live in New York, you'll recognize the cases 212 is based on, but the headline rip doesn't really matter: what's more important is that this is a story that is rooted in...



HUSH, by Kate White

2010-03-26T12:58:41-04:00

(originally posted on February 21, 2010) White's novels, for me, are the perfect vacation read, even when I am up to my ears in deadlines. HUSH, however, is a departure from the first person Bailey Weggins mysteries (which owe their...



THE IMMORTAL LIFE OF HENRIETTA LACKS, by Henrietta Skloot

2010-02-21T19:57:29-05:00

(originally posted on January 23, 2010) Skloot's book, a couple of decades in the making, is an astounding achievement. The science is as easily understandable as the moral and ethical questions are expansive and ambiguous, but it's the way Skloot...



IF THE DEAD RISE NOT, by Philip Kerr

2010-02-21T19:56:40-05:00

(originally posted on January 23, 2010) How much longer can Bernie Gunther go on? I almost hope Kerr doesn't answer that question, because the way he's extended his urbane, sardonic Berlin-born sleuth's life has been masterful, again (as in A...



TRUE CONFECTIONS, by Katharine Weber

2010-02-21T19:55:58-05:00

(originally posted on January 23, 2010) Say, Dat's Tasty! But True Confections is a hell of a lot more than mere fictional candy history (though Weber's descriptions made my mouth water so much I suddenly craved all sorts of sweets...



THE MANY DEATHS OF THE FIREFLY BROTHERS, by Thomas Mullen

2010-02-21T19:55:17-05:00

(originally posted on January 23, 2010) Oh I want to shout about this book from all available rooftops. I want to jam it down the throats of literary snobs too hung up on the usual Lit-boy suspects, afraid of people...



THIS BOOK IS OVERDUE! by Marilyn Johnson

2010-02-21T19:54:29-05:00

(originally posted on January 23, 2010) I don't go to the library enough, but Johnson's paean to the institution - and the range of people, from old-school types dragged into the present to punk-haired, social media-savvy types loudly getting out...
