In addition

I'm now reading The Believers by Zoe Heller, who I've loved a long long time. On the weekend I read Anne Fleming's Pool-Hopping, which, in addition to being swim-lit, was a stellar collection of stories. In light of her latest book Life Sentences, the remarkable Laura Lippman's top ten memorable memoirs. Today I was sent a link to Based On Books, an interesting review site of books-based films. The Flying Troutmans is named to The Orange Prize longlist. Charlotte Ashley's Tangential to a History of Reading points to significant flaws in Sydney Henderson's literary character. And on literature and returning soldiers.
