The Case for Books

29Nov09

For anyone concerned about the changing literary world in the twenty-first century, The Case for Books looks to be an interesting read, reviewed here by Gerry Donaghy.

Elsewhere, Dancing in the Dark: A Cultural History of the Great Depression looks interesting, and is reviewed by Jonah Raskin in a short review that seems compelled to create multiple, small sections.

Despite an even shorter review, I’m intrigued by The Age of Wonder: How the Romantic Generation Discovered the Beauty and Terror of Science, reviewed by Benjamin Moser, as the book appears to cover some of the less famous but still remarkable minds.

Finally, What the Furies Bring, essays by Canadian poet Kenneth Sherman was strongly recommended by a friend of mine, so I plan to track it down.
