Contact me privately if you want one. Read more of this blog post »

I agree with Sunstein's assessment of the problem: He argues that the greatest problem facing our democracy is the intense and bitter polarization. His solution, though (reach out to those whose views you disagree with) seems naive. It seems to me, t ...more

If I could give this book more than five stars, I would. It is a delight. The romance is perfectly done. The characterization is sophisticated and subtle. The two families are captured in all their complexity. I particularly enjoyed Bryce’s journey. ...more

“later she credited the Nancy Drew series with planting the idea that a girl could be an adventurer who thought for herself,”
Teri Kanefield, Free to Be Ruth Bader Ginsburg: The Story of Women and Law

“She wanted to teach the justices that the very notion of “sugar and spice and everything nice” limited the opportunities and aspirations of their daughters. One way to do that was to show how seemingly benign gender classifications harmed men as well as women.”

Teri Kanefield I just want to make a comment about my review policy. I only review books that I love enough to give 5 stars, and I never review books by someone I know personally.
