House of Meetings Review

The Christian Science Monitor reviews House of Meetings, the new novel by Martin Amis, and declares that "the story ends with a muted fizzle." Amis will be in town this Saturday at the Lookingglass Theatre to talk to Victoria Lautman of WFMT as part of the Writers on the Record series. See Slowdown for the details.
