Unfortunately, It Was Paradise: Selected Poems by Mahmoud Darwish

[Mahmoud Darwish] is a force, undoubtedly the most popular and powerful poet of the Middle East.


Set This House in Order by Matt Ruff

The sometime first-person narrator is really just one of dozens of personalities literally shacking up in the head of the protagonist.


The New Southern Gentleman by Jim Booth

[It] takes the cultural confusion, the anachronism that is the New South and with tongue firmly in cheek, describes the region's dwindling pseudo-aristocratic heritage.


Motown: Music, Money, Sex, and Power by Gerald Posner

Gordy wasn't running a record company; he was running a factory.


From the Land of Green Ghosts: A Burmese Odyssey by Pascal Khoo Thwe

He is . . . a skilled writer who infuses a tale of war with warmth, magic and humanity.

America Undercover: Cannibal: The Real Hannibal Lecters

The most important questions Cannibal never addresses are what she (and presumably we) find so compelling about modern cannibal stories, and how our obsession over these stories is directly tied to contemporary culture.


Are You Hot? The Search For America’s Sexiest People

Perhaps the problem with Are You Hot? is that it's too simple-minded even for reality TV.
