The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court by Jeffrey Toobin
The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court

erickson.bruce, October 2, 2007

An eloquent and insighful insider's account of how the Supreme Court works and how it is driven not only by the Constitution and precedent but also by personality and politics.

The Lay of the Land: A Novel by Richard Ford
The Lay of the Land: A Novel

erickson.bruce, September 3, 2007

Where have I been? How did I miss Richard Ford's first two books ("The Sportswriter" and "Independence Day") in this trilogy akin to Updike's "Rabbit" series? In "Lay of the Land," Ford draws a life-like portrait of his divorced, aging, prostate cancer victim and protagonist, Frank Bascombe, with Proustian detail and a lot of humor, insight and eloquence.
