I’ve been contributing reviews to publications for many years–it’s one of the delights of my life. Below is a selection of the reviews I’ve published on novels and short story collections. The range is vast, from awful potboilers to the most magnificent fiction written today. I never mind when I’m assigned a book I’d never choose on my own. There is something to learn from every type of writing.
Baricco, Allessandro: An Illiad: A Story of War
Benioff, David: City of Thieves
Dai Sijie: Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress
Oates, Joyce Carol: A Widow’s Story
Shriver, Lionel: A Perfectly Good Family
Stead, Elizabeth: The Sparrows of Edward Street
Hello. Great job, if I wasn’t so busy with my school work I read your whole site. Thanks!
