Reviews

Curtis Sittenfeld reviews Elaine Weiss’s The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote (Viking) for the NYT, calling it “a gold mine” and writing “So vividly had she depicted events that by the climactic vote … I got goose bumps.” The paper also reviews Anatomy of a Miracle by Jonathan Miles (Hogarth: Random), deciding it is “best appreciated as a highly entertaining literary performance.” Also Lawrence Wright’s God Save Texas: A Journey into the Soul of the Lone Star State (Knopf; LJ starred review): “The book rambles far and wide, and it’s a testament to Wright’s formidable storytelling skills that a reader will encounter plenty of information without ever feeling lost.” Finally, Look Alive Out There: Essays by Sloane Crosley (MCD: Macmillan): “the most memorable lines in this one are built to break hearts.”
