The Girl on the Train – Book Re...

The Girl on the Train – Book Review
I can’t do this, I can’t just be a wife. I don’t understand how anyone does it—there is literally nothing to do but wait. Wait for a man to come home and love you. Either that or look around for something to distract you. -from The Girl on the Train- Rachel has turned into a drunk, lost, lonely and obsessive…and completely unreliable si [...]

Principles of Navigation – Book...

Principles of Navigation – Book Review
Fixing the broken had become his theme, personally and professionally, as he’d told Wolf, letting his friend assume “personal” meant his home remodeling and “professional” meant Rolly was back to creative work. But he wasn’t. – from Principles of Navigation – Alice and Rolly Becotte are married [...]

We Are All Completely Beside Ourselve...

We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves – Book Review
In 1996, ten years had passed since I’d last seen my brother, seventeen since my sister disappeared. The middle of my story is all about their absence, though if I hadn’t told you that, you might not have known. By 1996, whole days went by in which I hardly thought about either one. – from We Are All Completely Beside Oursel [...]

The Last Good Paradise – Book R...

The Last Good Paradise – Book Review
Now their life in tatters, Richard went off diving. Where had that protective, nurturing Richard gone? Amusing himself despite her torment. Ten years, every year since law school, lopped off.

The Dog Stars – Book Review

The Dog Stars – Book Review
So I wonder what it is this need to tell. To animate somehow the deathly stillness of the profoundest beauty. Breathe life in the telling. Counter I guess to Bangley’s modus which is to kill just about everything that moves. – from Dog Stars, page 52 – The world is not the same. A flu has wiped out 99 percent of all humans. [...]
