Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Both these books cover essentially the same ground and are good basic guides for making candles. They deal with waxes, wicks, molds, scents, and a variety of decorating techniques. Oppenheimer's book has a more extensive text with line drawings, while Coney's is completely illustrated with color photographs. Both have more information on candle-making than Gloria Nicol's The New Candle Book (LJ 11/1/95), a guide that emphasizes candle display. These are both good basic books for the library craft collection.

Pushcart Prize-winner Richter's debut collection of 13 short stories exhibits an odd sensibility--her situations are ordinary but the characters are slightly twisted. She writes about teenage girls who are best friends...until one slashes the other's face with a razor blade. The members of a heavy-metal band, who strive to fill themselves with hatred and violence, also have an overwhelming desire to help those in trouble and rescue stray animals. A former TV star remarks, "I'm a has-been, but I take solace in knowing that to be a has-been, you have to have been something once." This comment is typical of the characters, whose lives are in crisis. Richter's writing has an irony that is familiar yet fresh; her stories are extremely well written and engaging.
