A Manual for Cleaning Women by Lucia Berlin
"Short stories are difficult to write anyway but these are less than short stories; they are unfinished vignettes without character development or plot. They are notes to be developed into stories later. The writing itself is strong, even though I..." Read more of this review »

Wanda and 2 other people liked Nikki's review of Push Not the River:
Push Not the River by James Conroyd Martin
"Overall? I was bored. I did not enjoy Martin's writing, his voice did not feel authentic for a female perspective. I absolutely could not stand Zofia, such a miserable character. Anna was either extremely and foolishly trusting or clueless. It too..." Read more of this review »
Wanda and 6 other people liked Rebecca Huston's review of Push Not the River:
Push Not the River by James Conroyd Martin
"After reading some enthusiastic reviews, I decided to read this one -- and I hated it. Set in the late 18th century, it tells the story of a young Polish countess, Anna Maria, who goes through every sort of mayhem and abuse during the partition of..." Read more of this review »

Abraham Verghese
“I spent as much time as I could with Ghosh. I wanted every bit of wisdom he could impart to me. All sons should write down every word of what their fathers have to say to them. I tried. Why did it take an illness for me to recognize the value of time with him? It seems we humans never learn. And so we relearn the lesson every generation and then want to write epistles. We proselytize to our friends and shake them by the shoulders and tell them, "Seize the day! What matters is THIS moment!" Most of us can't go back and make restitution. We can't do a thing about our should haves and our could haves. But a few lucky men like Ghosh never have such worries; there was no restitution he needed to make, no moment he failed to seize.

Now and then Ghosh would grin and wink at me across the room. He was teaching me how to die, just as he'd taught me how to live.”
Abraham Verghese, Cutting for Stone
