Diverse Reviews

I’ve been doing more off-line than on-line reading recently, which gets you little weblog content, but I do have a couple of new book reviews posted for The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark and Miss Wyoming by Douglas Coupland, both of which I rated ‘+’, though Miss Jean Brodie is the better book by far. I haven’t gotten reviews up for them yet, but I’ve also recently read Nancy Kress’s Beggers in Spain which I thought was very good, Michael Cunningham’s The Hours which is interesting if you’ve read Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway (and remember it) but I imagine is somewhat shallow otherwise, and a bunch of mystery novels by Laurie King and Sue Grafton, which were fun hot-summer-weekend recreation. The book-in-progress on the history of tort law is very interesting and I’ll hopefully finish it up this weekend and write up a review.
