An Extremely Abbreviated Weekend Update

Sometimes an enforced hiatus from the Internet is a good thing, so the full-on Weekend Update will return next week at the usual time and usual place.

In the meantime, check out my review of Nikita Lalwani’s debut novel GIFTED for the Philadelphia Inquirer; Dana Kaye’s profile of Libby Hellmann and the CHICAGO BLUES team for the Chicago Sun-Times; a lengthy Q&A with Robert B. Parker in the Boston Globe Magazine;  another with Illona Haus in the Waterloo Record; and the Sun-Sentinel profiles Mitch Kaplan as Books & Books celebrates anniversary number 25.
