reviewed A Three Dog Life. October 24, 2010
A Three Dog Life
Heartbreaking. Beautiful. Poetic. What I appreciated most about this book was the honesty in which Thomas discusses her experiences with her husband, the difficulty of being in a care taking role that …
reviewed Drinking Coffee Elsewhere. October 23, 2010
drinking coffee elsewhere
I've heard a lot of criticism about this book, so I put off reading it. This just goes to show I rarely agree with my friends when it comes to literature ... I loved it. "Drinking Coffee Elsewhere" was …

Ikiru
This movie is like the best literature in that it requires a certain amount of dedication from its viewer. The movie begins with a working man, who is going through the motions, working a soul-killing …
reviewed Brother, I'm Dying. October 15, 2010
442FE38837118E13D1BE7B12391B57A
Brother, I'm Dying begins with a moral challenge. As the memoir progresses, the challenge reappears; it is woven into each story line as the author records events. In fact, Danticat's memoir reads …
reviewed In Cold Blood. October 15, 2010
In Cold Blood
Capote's prose is fantastic. His images are precise and vivid, and due to this his ability to create an encapsulating scene that truly puts the reader in the moment, in this Kansas city--a quiet, small-town …
reviewed Fat Girl: A True Story. October 15, 2010
B37623A8B209A6D5800762E45225E53
This book should've been condensed into a tight, dynamite essay. There was a heartbreaking but ironic narration that was great at first. But, as a whole book, I began to feel the way I do when I'm watching …

The Theory of Light and Matter (Vintage
Short story collections are difficult to rate because as a package, the book has to work as well, if not better, than a novel. At the same time, each story is judged on its own merit. The Theory of Light …

Lit: A Memoir
Karr's hard-edged poetic voice made The Liars' Club one of my favorite books. In Lit, I found the voice just as searing and lovely, but damn-preachy and not as consistent (the prose goes from being incredibly …
reviewed Memoirs From The Asylum. October 07, 2010
Memoirs From The Asylum
Many books take on the subject of mental illness, many more are set in psychiatric wards, but usually these are narratives that recount a single story or perspective. What distinguishes Memoirs from the …

Maggie: A Girl Of The Streets and also George's Mother: A Tragic Tale of the Bowery
This book is a treasure, as much for the story of Crane's trying to get it published as for the story itself. I am always drawn to authors' first books. There's often an energy there lost in latter books. …
reviewed Freedom: A Novel. October 04, 2010
Freedom: A Novel
  Freedom has the two-and-a-half-dimensional feel of reality television. I enjoy reading it, but I'm not convinced that any of the characters (especially Patty) is really so good at taking …
