Pandora’s Handbag: Adventures in the Book World by Elizabeth Young

Elizabeth Young is ultimately a book lover's reviewer rather than a conventional industry hack.


A Plague of Frogs; Unraveling an Environmental Mystery by William Souder

Frogs are supposed to be a 'sentinel species' . . . If frogs are doing badly, we have reason to be anxious.


The New Biographical Dictionary of Film by David Thomson

Both in throwing his bricks and presenting his bouquets, [the author] seems curiously off the mark.


Layne Staley: Angry Chair by Adriana Rubio

The book is nothing more than one fan's viewpoint on the tortured existence of Staley.


Inviting Disaster: Lessons from the Edge of Catastrophe by James R. Chiles

Disasters rarely happen by accident. Instead, they occur when one link in a long chain of events fails.


Food and Loathing: A Lament by Betsy Lerner

What we have here is yet another memoir -- excuse me, lament -- on disordered eating suitable for a made-for-TV movie.


About Schmidt by Louis Begley

Offers an important meditation on the enduring meanings of age, maturity and experience in a world increasingly devoted to the brevity of youth.

Once Upon a Time (1944)

On its surface a classic fairytale, it can also be read as commentary on Hollywood's role in wartime America.


Making the Misfits (2001)

There's a cautionary tale in the notion that life sometimes imitates art enough to destroy both, and this piece might have striven harder to assess which is the greater American tragedy.


Joe and Max (2002)

Meditates on the space these celebrity athletes occupied for their respective societies, serving as reluctant folk heroes and symbols for their nations.


Half Past Dead (2002)

Ja is partnered with Steven Seagal, the fading action/martial arts star who not only refuses to go away.


Ciao! Manhattan (1972)

Sedgwick was one of the Tragic Muses, those women who did not so much make things happen as stand still and allow things to happen to them.


Auto Focus (2002)

'Auto Focus' is, as its title suggests, about self-interest and -obsession.
