Recent Stories

The Denver Post reviewed Loving Frank by Nancy Horan, and declared it "a story that should resonate with anyone facing difficult choices."

The Washington Post reviewed Loving Frank, too, and called it "a novel of impressive scope and ambition."

• The Washington Post also published a new essay by Ana Castillo, the author of our current book club selection, in which she talks about the "ghosts" who inspire her writing. There is also a brief biographical profile of Ana Castillo to accompany the essay.

• Happy belated birthday, Ray Bradbury. On the occasion of his 87th birthday on August 22, the New York Times talked to Mr. Bradbury about the recent publication of some of his long-forgotton works.
