I discovered John Vassos when I was working on an exhibit on industrial design at the Cooper Hewitt and thought his artwork was amazing. I wrote my PhD dissertation on him, and found out incredible radios and televisions he designed for RCA - then I turned this into a book. I can't wait for you to read it. It is wonderful that you have materials from him. He was incredibly talented and important! I hope to also curate an exhibit on him eventually and would love to let you know about it. Can I have your email address and add you to my contact list to let you know about upcoming events. Thanks! Danielle(less)

Danielle Shapiro and 29 other people liked Jill's review of Dietland:
Dietland by Sarai Walker
"Sadly, I thought this was a slightly muddled mess of missed opportunities. The premise was fantastic; Plum, a morbidly obese woman who ghost-writes an advice column for the uber-cool and svelte publisher of a teen magazine, comes into the crosshairs " Read more of this review »
Danielle Shapiro is on page 200 of 320 of Dietland: It was my choice for bookclub which I regret. The characters are well drawn for the most part - however the plot line of the female terrorist group is very familiar. It is like Lizzie Borden's film Born in Flames - but maybe there need to be more books like this that show a woman's perspective. This is a little flat.

A Friend of the Earth by T. Coraghessan Boyle
"All I could manage of this one was 100 pages. I wanted to like it--its premise of near-future ecological collapse feels relevant and laudable--but the prose is so lazily executed that it begins to feel like an insult. The book is full of cheap narrat" Read more of this review »
