Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Humor, intelligence, and not a little common sense inform the dozens of pieces in this third collection from a Pulitzer Prizewinning columnist. Syndicated in some 400 newspapers, Goodman, in these columns of the past four years, writes about people, issues and popular inanities with a skill that makes her a master of the 750-word form. Her recent remarriage and "encounter" with middle age make her observations on love, gender and midlife especially telling. With Goodman, however, half the delight lies in anticipating where her inquisitive mind will take her next. She brings us from Liz Taylor's need for "privacy," to aerial burials, to the Nancy Drew books, to thoughtful examinations of AIDS and other topics of controversy and concern. This is vintage Goodman and certain to please her growing following. October 18

From Library Journal

Reading Ellen Goodman can be habit- forming. Fans of the Pulitizer Prize- winning columnist will enjoy this col lection of her columns written since 1981; those who do not know her work will find this volume a fine introduc tion. Goodman's columns are syndicat ed in 400 newspapers, where they gen erally appear on the editorial or op-ed page. Her themes are ones not found frequently on editorial pages: commit: ment, friendship, self-doubt, work life, social values. Her tone ranges from amusing (`` `The computer is down,' a friend informs me, `is another way to spell `coffee break.' '') to acerbic (``Granada made war fun again.''). Timely and to the point, these essays are a good choice for most libraries. Rebecca Wondriska, Trinity Coll. Lib., Hartford
