Articles written for the California Literary Review:

  • The Headmaster’s Dilemma by Louis Auchincloss
    Posted on 26 Nov 2007 in Fiction Reviews

    There is another criticism that Auchincloss has had to counter in his long and illustrious career as writer (he also worked as a lawyer). In his books, there is a constant struggle to capture a bygone world — in a nod perhaps to Edith Wharton and Henry James, those other chroniclers of the hypocrisy of the rich and famous.

  • The Snake Stone by Jason Goodwin
    Posted on 25 Oct 2007 in Crime Fiction, Fiction Reviews, Historical Fiction, Mystery, Turkey

    Goodwin now returns with another mystery, a tale as exotic as the first one, delicious in its evocation of the last days of the Ottoman dynasty. Here, however, the territory is dangerously personal.

  • Proust and the Squid by Maryanne Wolf
    Posted on 26 Sep 2007 in Education, Linguistics, Non-Fiction Reviews, Science

    Reminding the reader that the likes of Thomas Edison, Leonardo da Vinci and Albert Einstein were dyslexics, Wolf ponders whether we can explain the “preponderance of creativity and ‘thinking outside the box’ in many people with dyslexia?” Wolf’s rhetorical questions are tackled with grace and one always feels richer for having spent time with her.
