I was among the many reporters who came to Oklahoma City in 1995 to cover the aftermath of the bomb that destroyed the federal building and killed 168 people and wounded many more. I wrote a lot about it, but I couldn’t make much sense of it, especially because Oklahoma City also happens to be my hometown.

Mostly what I remember about this book was that it was one of the first books (if not _the_ first) I was assigned to read in my freshman year of college -- and realizing that my high school teachers had not lied; we really would be assigned to read e ...more

Smash Cut by Brad Gooch

Muddled and gauzy, probably not in the way the author intended. The repressed editor in me kept trying to discern what was wrong with the prose here, whether Gooch was just trying to do too much in a sentence or paragraph or just got lost in his own ...more

A hiding-Jews-in-the-attic story told from the outside, by a teenage girl in Amsterdam who finds herself caught up in the underground resistance and drawn to a mystery that doesn't turn out at all like you'd expect. A great work of researched imagina ...more

Fascinating, I thought. Details from a whole other world, past and present. I read this to go along with my Washington Post story about the Liz Garbus documentary for HBO, "Nothing Left Unsaid: Gloria Vanderbilt and Anderson Cooper." Here's a link: h ...more

Maybe 2.5 stars.

I had mixed emotions about this book, especially the last half of it, which devolved from an interesting narrative of young manhood into a lot of tedious name-checking and humblebragging. It's worth mentioning up front that, while I'v

I read this in college, not long after I had spent a summer as a reporting intern in the Washington Post's Style section, many years after the events described in this book. But it's sort of a fascinating read for anyone remotely interested in what b ...more
