So where are the book reviews? For some reason, I had a lousy reading month: I completed a mere five books during August. James Lee Burke's Rain Gods was outstanding, but since I reviewed his short stories on August 12, I decided not to sing his praises again so soon.
Don't worry, though. Something will pop up, most likely E.L. Doctorow's Homer & Langley, to be released on Tuesday.
