I've never been one who could make it through an entire New Yorker book review. I just want the meat and potatoes. Simply put, is the book worth buying?
So when I wrote the reviews for the upcoming anniversary issue (issue 7), I made the reviews as simple as I could. A little bit of detail about the author, and a bunch about the book, and whether or not you should buy it.
I am sure the reviews will be too short for a lot of people, but I think it would be just right for a whole lot more.
