Nights at Rizzoli --the writing life

While I was writing Nights at Rizzoli, I was also trying my best to interview people I knew who had worked there. I’m in contact with four of them, and there were four more, but all eight were hesitant, reluctant, and mostly claimed to know little or nothing of what actually went down in the rather complex politics and personal relations in the shop during the years I was there. At first I thought Read more of this blog post »

If We Were Electric by Patrick Earl Ryan
Rate this book
Clear rating
One story in this collection reads like a folk tale that's been around for years. If I'd found "Labor" in an anthology of authentic Louisiana Folk Tales, I'd say, yes, right, perfect. That's how good Ryan is as an author. I have other favorites, the ...more

A Real Life by Perry Brass

Perry Brass is a versatile author. He writes Science Fiction, He writes How-To psychology books, and a few years ago he wrote a memoir of his youth, King of Angels, the story of himself as a poor Jewish boy growiing up in the American South, that I f ...more

Jaguar Paloma and the Caketown Bar by Jess Wells
Rate this book
Clear rating
I've enjoyed several of Jess Well's previous novels for their wonderful evocation of specific historic periods and the characters who are often hemmed in by those periods' customs and ethics. Her women characters especially are put upon heavily, if r ...more

The Family Way by Christopher DiRaddo
The Family Way
by Christopher DiRaddo (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
I enjoyed DiRaddo's The Geography of Pluto, but I wasn't prepared for how substantially more developed this novel is, and how enjoyable on several levels. The title refers, of course, to the ongoing plot arc of a maturing gay man attempting to sire a ...more

March Violets by Philip Kerr

Several people had recommended Philip Kerr to me and I wasn't disappointed. Having myself lived in Berlin longer than most tourists, and having traveled around the city on foot, by bike, and subway, I was familiar with many of the places Kerr referen ...more

Doomed and Famous by Adrian Dannatt
Rate this book
Clear rating
Certainly doomed, since every little four to five page essay in the book is in essence an obituary. I'm less sure about famous, since I barely knew any of the names here. Someone in the London-New York art axis might do better with that. However, Dan ...more

The Grass Harp by Truman Capote
Rate this book
Clear rating
We tend to forget that Capote began as a "Regional Writer" and a "Southern Writer" because he outgrew that label so quickly with his short stories, Breakfast at Tiffany's and his non-fiction collections. But his second published novel is a charmer, k ...more

Unburied by Rebecca Rowland

Rebecca Rowland's previous collection, The Half That You See, was quite good but in Unburied: A Collection of Queer Dark Fiction we get to read more than a dozen or more excellent pieces of dark fantasy and horror. With the inclusion of Greg Herren's ...more

Consider Phlebas by Iain M. Banks

This was the first of Banks' books I read in 1995, before it was published in the U.S. It was, however, published in the U.K. by my British publisher, and I was given a copy during my UK-European book tour. My copy vanished, but I got more of his SF ...more
