Book News

Richard Powers won the National Book Awards for The Echo Maker. I'm about to open the first page so now I'm nothing more than a bandwagon jumper. Nuts.


Regan Books, recently mentioned for their crime contest and lauded for the very fine NBA-finalist The Zero by Jess Walter, loses all good will with me because of this. Seriously?


Actually we'll play a game: Which is the more irritating book? This one (which FaithWords is now pubbing) or the OJ book?


(Edited to add: When Rupert Murdoch is suddenly the arbiter of "too far" that doesn't say much about our country. But the News Corp. chief bowed to public pressure and pulled both the show and the book surrounding OJ. )
