Nathan "N.R." Gaddis (nathannrgaddis) | 985 comments Federman is the cause of my recent return to UNEARTHing BURIED books. The quick series of events which led to my discovery of Ray's works and from which a cute review about saving the WHALES, Take it or Leave It.

Nathan "N.R." Gaddis (nathannrgaddis) | 985 comments Just got through reading the material and links from your Federman blog, Enrique. Merci. Now about getting that review over here's to the center of the world, aka, The BURIED Book club.

And to further thank the good people of the world for Federman's books, the reinvigoration of my thesis that some of the best books ever written are still BURIED.

Kris (krisrabberman) | 7 comments I finished Shhh: The Story of a Childhood a few days ago and a review is pending. I may want to read another of his earlier books first, though. I have Take it or Leave It and Double or Nothing here, and just ordered another five of his books. I'll keep you all posted, and in the meantime, I'll check out the reviews linked here.

Nate D (rockhyrax) | 354 comments That link is invaluable. And it motivates me to actually try to reach out to more authors -- while they are still alive -- as well.
