"Absolute Beginners by Colin Macinnes disappointed me. He writes well, but the book, his most famous, has dated badly. Emma Donoghue's The Pull of the Stars is, I think, her best work since Room, and not because of its timeliness (she wrote a…"

"Ah, but Bogdanovich knew what to leave out of the movie. Don't get me wrong, I love <i>The Last Picture Show</i>, but it's a novel by a young man and it shows. What am I reading, he asked, hypophoracally? Two local writers: I…"
