Two Reviews

Patrick Somerville's debut novel, The Cradle, receives a nice review in the Denver Post, as the reviewer calls the book "a lovely, finely wrought tale of unlikely redemption."

And, the Washington Post reviews The Foie Gras Wars by Tribune reporter Mark Caro, saying "if you are looking for an animal-rights manifesto...Caro is not your man."
