The "N" word,
This review is from: The Novel: An Alternative History: Beginnings to 1600 (Hardcover)
The word "NOVEL" still conjures up visions of "forgot-to-finish-the-required-reading-before-class" jitters in me; yet Mr. Moore's Alternative History of the "N-word" is unfolding as the perfect antidote for the "heebie jeebies." I like that Mr. Moore has not forgotten "the common reader," at least in style and construction of his book: I actually laughed out loud (LOL) when reading portions of it. This is turning out to be a damn enjoyable history of the n, o, v, e, l, I guess I'm just pleading to the "common reader" when I say that folks interested in an erudite, yet FUN history of the "en-oh-vee-ee-elle" should get Mr. Moore's book now, and not wait for the pesky paper back!
