Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

A perusal of author (Writing and Selling Your Mystery Novel) and critic (the Boston Globe) Ephron's latest creation will be a pure delight for book lovers. Herein, she recommends fiction and nonfiction titles for all the expected moods-e.g., "for thrills," "for chills"-but also for the unexpected, e.g., "to bend your mind" and "to satisfy your curiosity." In total, she accounts for some 70 moods. Along with notations for major awards, Ephron provides a unique rating system to highlight each title's qualities. These ratings cover such characteristics as the book's literary merit, influence, difficulty, and humor. Most commendable is her inclusion of the classics along with contemporary best sellers, which results in an impressive breadth. Some may question, however, her criteria for awarding literary merit. For example, do Steve Martin's Shopgirl and Stephen King's Misery deserve the same three-star literary rating as Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre? The index (unseen) will surely add to ease of use in locating entries. Publication dates are not always provided. Still, a recommended addition to public library reference or circulating collections.
