Richard Goldstein was a pioneer and chronicler of my favorite era, the '60s; he was the first rock critic to write a regular column (in the Village Voice) on the musicians and music of the times. Embedded in the heart of the culture he wrote about the connections between the music and political unrest in one of the most pivotal times in history. He was there, he lived it and wrote passionately about it. ~ Review by Liz Barnum

Compelling and well researched, Factory Man is the story of one man's battle against globalization and the outsourcing of American jobs. John Bassett III, a third generation furniture maker is not without faults but the love of his country, his business and the people who worked for him and made him rich was strong enough to sustain him in this big fight to keep his factories humming on American soil. Factory Man is a fascinating, eye opening, quintessential American story! ~ Reviewed by Liz Barnum

T.C Boyle explores an array of topics; gun violence, anarchy, heroism, mental illness, love, nature and family dynamics in his latest book. The story takes place in the woods of Northern California and revolves around a small handful of characters all dealing with their own issues about their place in society but connected to each other through the mental illness and destructiveness of one of them. The writing is vivid, clear and concise and the story is very character driven and very satisfying. ~ Reviewed by Liz Barnum
