Once in a great while I’m asked if I have a favorite story that I’ve written. I don’t. But if I did, it might be this little essay for the Post’s Style section (“Chuh-click.

Bettyville by George Hodgman
"Bettyville is an honest and loving portrait of a disappearing world—an America of weekly bridge games and hymns played on the organs of small town churches, of proud rose gardens and desserts delivered to neighbors in need. It’s a world exemplifie..." Read more of this review »

This slender, intriguing book washed up on the giveaway table at work and I figured it had been a while since I tried a Beatles book. Very quickly into this it's clear that it's an academic work, but it's accessibly and thoughtfully written. (I didn' ...more

"[Insert obvious joke review here: "...isn't."] Ugh, I just can't, with Wolitzer. There is just something insufferable--to me--about these upper middle class white New York people. A loooooot of o-how-we-suffer self-pitying goes on, hand in hand wi..." Read more of this review »

Why describe two things in a room when you can describe 12? Why explore a character's inner thoughts for one long paragraph when you can write five?
