The Garfield Book Review was founded in December 2010 and takes its name from the Brooklyn, NY street the author grew up on. I’ll review most anything if it’s interesting (for whatever reason) and coherent—that’s the short way of saying I’ll devour Dan Brown and certain varieties of “chick lit”—though I lean toward British novelists, depictions of American political theater and tomes on the Third Reich. Reviews are posted twice a month on average, along with news and general literary musings. Suggestions and/or thinly-veiled criticisms are welcomed.
