by Roger Rosenblatt, a review from Christian Science Monitor by Marjorie Kehe.
"Roger Rosenblatt's fans ? and he has many ? are probably wondering why it has taken this witty and prolific writer so long to tackle the satiric novel. As a columnist for Time magazine, Mr. Rosenblatt has won two George Polk Awards and numerous other honors. He has also racked up kudos in the world of television, where his essays ? aired on public TV ? have been awarded both the Peabody and the Emmy. Add to these 11 books (nonfiction and essays) and four off-Broadway plays, and it does indeed seem surprising that only now has Rosenblatt decided to turn his hand to a novel."
