REVIEWED: The Wangs Vs. The World

The Wangs vs. The World by Jade Chang (Satirical Novel, 2016).

A satire on family conflict and the materialistic side of the American Dream, this good first novel is about a Chinese-American family dealing with a sudden fall from economic grace, courtesy the Great Recession, circa 2008. 615 more words

REVIEWED: Razor Girl

Razor Girl by Carl Hiaasen. (Humorous/Satirical Mystery Novel, 2016)

Carl Hiaasen is quite possibly the funniest writer in the US today. His fractured fairy tales paint a vivid and often laugh-out-loud portrait of modern life and crime in America as a whole, with a particular focus on his home ground of southern Florida. 486 more words

REVIEWED: Sneaky Pie For President

Sneaky Pie For President by Rita Mae Brown & Sneaky Pie Brown. (Satirical/Fantasy/Humor Novel, 2012).

Tired of “politics as usual” and–in particular–this year’s mega-toxic Presidential campaign?  551 more words

Reviewed: THE LAST DAYS OF NEW PARIS

The Last Days of New Paris by China Mieville (Surreal/SF novella, 2016).

This novella is a masterful, one-of-a-kind blending of such unlikely elements as the surreal movement, semi-magical technology, the Nazi fascination with the occult and good old World War Two spy intrigue. 374 more words

Reviewed: BREAK NO BONES

Break No Bones by Kathy Reichs (Mystery novel, 2006).

Over the years I enjoyed many episodes of the TV series Bones, featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. 341 more words
