Buddy Holly: Reminiscing

Blonde Redhead: Melody of Certain Damaged Lemons

In the end, I was a damaged lemon in need of healing, and Blonde Redhead’s album offered me an empathetic treatment for my sadness. What a release.


The Pro

The truth, as Ennis sees it, is that these superheroes, and the escapist mentality they represent, are obsolete.


Hellfire and Brimstone

That's what this latest arc is all about: the ever-changing landscape of teenage relationships and instant celebrity status.


The Last Man

Takes a rather simple, and not entirely new, post-apocalyptic idea, and brings it into fresh territory.


You Shall Know Our Velocity by Dave Eggers

I have mixed feelings about Dave Eggers. I stay up at night thinking about it.


The Spirit of Family by Al and Tipper Gore

Many of the photos are reminiscent of the Work Projects Administration (WPA) Federal Arts Project from 1936-1942.


Quiver by Stephanie Spinner

Stephanie Spinner's 'Quiver' is not just a good book for young readers, it's a stepping stone to Greek mythology.


The Ice Cream Headache by James Jones

The works of James Jones should be required reading in time of impending war.


Bombay-London-New York by Amitava Kumar

Indian fiction, long confined to the coffee tables of Indian expatriates, has now entered mainstream publishing in an understated, but determined manner.

Röyksopp: Melody A.M.

Aside from the obvious comparisons to Air, or any other European down-tempo impresario, they wear their affection for pure pop sound producing on their parkas.
