Rockport Mens Suede Mocassin Slippers Rockport
6 of 7 people found the following review helpful
These slippers are described as being made of suede leather, they are not. Is this fraudulent, possibly.

It seems the company has decided that it's OK to assume their customers are idiots; well we're not, Rockport.

Reading Literature Today: Two Complementary Essays&hellip by Tabish Khair
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
I found this slim book to be both intriguing and thought provoking. Literary theory can often be overblown and impenetrable, but the individual essays by Doubinsky and Khair included here are accessible and inclusive and the transcript of a discussion between the two authors nicely brings their perspectives together. Reading the book was like listening to two well-read friends expounding on a subject that obviously means a lot to both of them. Reading Literature Today, despite its slightly scholarly title, is a fascinating book that anyone who loves good fiction of any kind would benefit from reading.
