Reviews

The NYT reviews The Monarchy of Fear: A Philosopher Looks at Our Political Crisis by Martha C. Nussbaum (S. &  S.): "she writes against a (mostly male) tradition of philosophical and political thinking that minimizes emotions as merely a source of irrationality and embarrassment." A.M. Homes's Days of Awe (Viking: Penguin): "skillfully circles and tugs at the question of what it means to live in flawed, fragile, hungry human bodies." Jane Smiley reviews The Unpunished Vice: A Life of Reading by Edmund White (Bloomsbury: Macmillan), a book of recommendations. The paper also offers reviews two books on the Flint, Michigan water disaster: Mona Hanna-Attisha's What the Eyes Don’t See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City (One World: Random; LJ starred review) and The Poisoned City: Flint's Water and the American Urban Tragedy by Anna Clark (Holt). The Washington Post reviews Anne Tyler’s Clock Dance (Knopf; LJ starred review): "Tyler’s novels may feel too conciliatory toward the strictures of domestic life, too free of erotic energy to be feminist works, but her stories are often concerned with the central challenge of the feminist movement." Also White Hot Grief Parade: A Memoir by Alexandra Silber (Pegasus: Norton): "Silber has written a rare showbiz memoir that holds more value for the writing than the celebrity name-dropping or rags-to-black tie trajectory."Michael Dirda appreciates A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain. NPR reviews The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay (William Morrow: Harper; LJ starred review) with the spooky warning, read it "And You Won't Sleep For A Week." The Cost of Living: A Working Autobiography by Deborah Levy (Bloomsbury: Macmillan): "a smart, slim meditation on womanhood informed by Levy's wide reading." Also Evgenia Citkowitz’s The Shades (Norton): "an absorbing book by an author who knows how to create organic suspense without ever overplaying her hand."
