Weekend Book Reviews

Written on: June 15th, 2009 by: in Reviews

The Sunday New York Times Book Review showcased some very interesting- sounding titles this weekend:

  • A Short History of Women, by Kate Walbert- interconnected short stories about the experiences of a British suffragist and her descendants- including one set at Dover A.F.B.
  • Commencement, by J. Courtney Sullivan. The lives of a group of Smith College students in school and beyond- not quite as good as The Group, according to the reviewer, but “an affable first novel”.
  • Three different reviews on books about the current financial crisis focusing mainly on J.P. Morgan and Bear Sterns. “Street Fighters” sounds particularly gritty.
