I’ve been trying to avoid super extra shameless self-promotion by posting new reviews on the reviews page, instead of the main page, but I am making an exception for Ron Charles’ Washington Post review, because a) there’s a snazzy video involved (Alas, I am not snazzy enough to figure out how to embed it, but the link should work b) It’s really fantastic when reviewers not only like the book, but really “get it,” c) As evidenced by the fact that typing “The Washington Post,” and “get it,” in close prioximity caused me to say aloud The Washington Post: if you don’t get it, you don’t get it, The Washington Post is my hometown newspaper, and I grew up reading it, way back pre-internet, and so there’s something really special about actually being in it. On that note, wonderful as the video review series is, I would encourage you to snag a copy of the print edition, if only to see the really lovely Edel Rodriguez artwork that accompanied the review.
P.S. Also really excited about this review that ran yesterday at Postbourgie
P.P.S I do not endorse bacon.
