Counterpunch
Counterpunch
by Carol Rossen
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars a salutory lesson in impermanence, 11 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Counterpunch (Hardcover)
Carol Rossen's reaction to the painful and radical change in her life and self image is courageously portrayed in this intimate account. A less intelligent and less socially conscious woman might have fared better in the circumstances following the attack that she suffered, but her unflinching honesty makes fascinating reading.

This does what I expected. I don't know if it is possible to keep a bottle cold for longer, but I am satisfied with this.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing, 27 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Elizabeth Jane Howard, in a talk of hers which I attended, had said pretty much what she says on the back cover about the immediacy of the characterization. I was attracted to enjoying the author's artistry. However, I'm afraid I didn't find any intensity secret or otherwise. I haven't finished it. Perhaps I will someday, but it's almost like magazine story-telling. Maybe I've moved on from upper-middleclass behaviour fiction. Sorry.

Digressions on Some Poems by Frank O'Hara
by Joe Lesueur
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A gentle primer, 14 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Digressions on some Poems by Frank O'Hara is a gentle primer on the greater understanding of Frank O'Hara's poems, their cultural allusions and the gay life in NYC in the 50s-60s. I thoroughly enjoyed it and was delighted to have found it.
