Is there anything this Grand Master cannot do?!,
This review is from: Due Considerations: Essays and Criticism (Hardcover)
This one man literary university seems to out-do even himself, as he reviews a vast assortment of mostly literary works, this time delving into such items as 2 books on the Lusitania sinking, a Turkish Nobel winner (yet still Mr. Updike is an also ran in this contest), lots of foreign authors, most notably perhaps McKeon's "Atonement", and tons more. As always, not a wasted word, so even someone like this reviewer can appreciate and even follow everything written here. Nice to see his comments often intersect with my own thoughts on occasion. And the great thing about this author's review collections is you can always check into them whenever you get the urge, and can "brush up" on simply vast realms of great writing, knowledge, and even fun!
