Recent Reviews, Quickly Noted

• Last week the Tribune reviewed Elizabeth Berg's new story collection, The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted, and declared, "You love these stories. You ride their waves. You think you're in for an afternoon of sweet distraction, but soon a certain gravity sets in. Soon you're admiring not just Berg's quick-fire prose, but her compassion and her clarity, her capacity for twining pathos into comedy, for making her readers care."

• The Independent looks at Armageddon in Retrospect by Kurt Vonnegut and says, "In a time of war and nightmare, Vonnegut's last works remind us that we can always simply say no to the whole horrible business."
