I expect to finish Wendy McClure’s The Wilder Life tonight and post my review Friday. If all goes according to plan, my review of The Mad Bomber of New York: The Extraordinary True Story of the Manhunt That Paralyzed a City by Michael M. Greenberg will be up some time tomorrow.
Not sure what I’ll review next after McClure’s book but it’ll be something. And I’ve been invited to review another play down in New York. That’ll be later in the month.
I hope you’re enjoying these reviews because I’d really like to keep them a regular feature. The trouble with theater and book reviews, though, is that they’re not conducive to interactivity. That is, the odds that enough of you will have already read a particular book or seen the play to get a comment thread going aren’t good. I’m trying to think of what to do about this. If you’ve got any ideas or think I even need to do something about it, please let me now.
Here are some of the books I have in the hopper:
My Lucky Life In and Out of Show Business: A Memoir by Dick Van Dyke.
The Savage City: Race, Murder, and a Generation on the Edge by T.J. English.
In the Rooms a novel by Tom Shone.
The Hemlock Cup: Socrates, Athens and the Search for the Good Life by Bettany Hughes.
When the Thrill Is Gone, the new Leonid McGill mystery by Walter Mosley.
Let me know if there's one in particular you'd like me to tackle next.
All of them are available for your kindle, in case you have one and were wondering.
