Releasing the Review: November 1 2009

I think I’m just going to send you straight through to the New York Times Book Review sans commentary this weekend. There are several halfway decent pieces: Dave Eggers on Kurt Vonnegut’s Look at the Birdie, Maureen Howard on Orhan Pamuk’s Museum of Innocence, Christopher Benfey on Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall, Terrence Rafferty on Peter Ackyord’s novel The Casebook of Victor
Frankenstein
(“does it have zombies?” I can just hear the publishers asking) and Adam Kirsch on Anne Heller’s biography Ayn Rand and the World She Made. Enjoy … see you next weekend!
