Book cover for Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland
One ugly-minded lover bragged that after she gave him oral sex, for example, he made her sing “Over the Rainbow” so he could hear those famous words sung through a mouthful of his semen.
Was this necessary ? What a crass book. Yuck.

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin
Rate this book
Clear rating
Sometimes I didn't even know what the hell was going on. That happens to me quite a bit in fantasy. But if the fantasy is well written and engaging, and has a plot held together by strong sinew, and characters that I can latch on to, then I don't car ...more

Charlotte Sometimes by Penelope Farmer
Rate this book
Clear rating
Farmer writes an captivating book - rich, slow, literary, foreboding - in which Charlotte switches places between her present (the 1960s?) and Clare's past (1918). Farmer does a tremendously strong job of portraying what it would be like to be Charlo ...more

How Fascism Works by Jason Stanley

Clear rating
A very short book that has a very strong effect upon a reader open to understanding the history of fascism, and how this rotten, stinking political philosophy is bubbling up out of the sewers once again to plague the world. Stanley breaks down how fa ...more

This Christie gets mixed reviews, but I thought it was classic Agatha. The relationship between Poirot and Hastings is the best of any books featuring the two of them together. The murder mystery is above par - I certainly didn't figure out whodunnit ...more
Dumb Witness (The Christie Collection) by Agatha Christie
"Above par Christie. I think I've decided that Hastings does, indeed, provide a very enjoyable soundboard, and this, sadly is his second to last appearance. The characters are reasonably fun, Poirot shows up early (which makes for a peppier start),..." Read more of this review »

Kenneth D. Ackerman
“The busy 20th and 21st centuries have made Garfield's era seem remote and irrelevant, its leaders ridiculed for their very obscurity... to the generation of Americans then alive, though, their dramas, humanities, and dignity were a compelling part of daily life. For twenty years after the Civil War, America was led by a group of larger-than-life figures with clay feet who fought and raged and plied their craft with nerve and ambition while following a code of honor riddled with blind spots and inconsistencies; during that time, public involvement in politics reached levels far higher than today. Garfield held a special place: one of the most promising of his generation, shot down in his prime, martyred for taking a principled stand.”
Kenneth D. Ackerman, Dark Horse: The Surprise Election and Political Murder of President James A. Garfield

Roald Dahl
“Sometimes Matilda longed for a friend, someone like the kind, courageous people in her books.”
