The Midnight Disease: The Drive to Write, Writer's Block, and the Creative Brain by Alice W Flaherty
The Midnight Disease: The Drive to Write, Writer's Block, and the Creative Brain

Megan Renehan, January 28, 2007

The Midnight Disease is a fascinating look at the biological mechanics of writing. Though it is quite technical, it brings neuroscience down to an understandable level without losing any meaning. This book will cause any writer to take a second look at his/her habits and motivations, and it offers remarkable insights on why and how we write.

Amsterdam by Ian McEwan
Amsterdam

Megan Renehan, December 17, 2006

Written In classic McEwan style, Amsterdam is a brief novel that, once read, will stay in the back of the readers' mind for years to come. The story cuts straight to the heart of the human condition; McEwan draws the reader into the lives of his characters and spares us nothing. In Clive and Vernon, we clearly see the obsession, panic, anger, jealousy, and revenge that we each have pushed down into the depths of ourselves. Amsterdam is a remarkable novel that will leave you breathless and reeling.
