The O. Henry Prize Stories 2005
Laura Furman (Editor)
January 2005
From Publishers Weekly
Whether culled from literary journals or glossier publications, the stories included in this year's O. Henry collection tend toward the polished, dense and emotionally complex. The best entries also add a burst of something brighter: a strong narrative voice, inventiveness or sheer exuberance. Among the standouts is Kevin Brockmeier's "A Short History of the Dead," which offers a brief but compelling take on mortality as the dead remember the final events of their lives while passing through a way station "city" before they move on to their ultimate afterlife destination. Sherman Alexie's poignant "What You Pawn I Will Redeem" follows an alcoholic, homeless Native American who finds his grandmother's tribal regalia in a Seattle pawnshop and embarks on a quixotic quest to recover his legacy. And Ron Rash's...

Critic in Love: A Romantic Biography of Edmund Wilson
David Castronovo
December 2005
From Publishers Weekly
The coauthors' deep familiarity with their subject (they've written biographies of Wilson and edited his letters) serves them well in this spirited, chatty look at his relationships with the opposite sex. Wilson himself reported on his experiences in thorough and unflinching detail in his journals, and this book is similarly not for the prudish—at times it even takes sly delight in the portly critic's unlikely success as a sexual athlete, claiming that he satisfied all his lovers, even into his late 70s. But the biographers also call attention to intellectual relationships based on "affinity... rather than sex" with such fellow writers as Dorothy Parker and Elinor Wylie. All the couplings, sexual and otherwise, are traced through Wilson's writings and, when available, those of the women. An account of his...
