Jessica Jessica said: " I totally started this once and was pleasantly surprised by an engrossing beginning: homoeroticism and a punk rock character, not at all what I'd expected! I fully intended to keep reading past page fifteen, and I'm still not sure where I went wrong. ...more "

Jessica Jessica said: " Man I wish TR would suddenly lurch back to life and stride manfully into this GOP clusterfuck that's melting poor America's brain.

So far this book is awesome! And since I'm utterly ignorant and don't know what happened in this country between about 1

Beyond C. L. R. James by John Nauright
"C. L. R. James’s Beyond a Boundary is widely proclaimed as one of the great sports books, as one of the founding books of post-colonialism and finest book about cricket that there is – so to propose to move Beyond C.L.R. James is a bold and prov..." Read more of this review »

Clear rating
I'm pretty convinced that this is the greatest book in the world, and I'm baffled as to why it's out of print because it's not like any better children's books have been written since 1989. If I were Harper Collins, I'd save a lot of time and energy ...more

This book disappointed and depressed me. It had so much promise yet wound up feeling like just yet another example of how all discourse on motherhood needs to be a zero sum game, where no women get permission to make their own choices without some ot ...more
Push Back by Amy Tuteur
"Four stars merely for the fact that we desperately need this book, and we desperately need an outspoken, brutally honest ob/gyn who will speak bluntly about the insanity, the existential sickness, that is modern mothering. I'm speaking specificall..." Read more of this review »
