Coretta -- Much More Than One Letter
13 February 2017 | 6:12 pm Books - The Huffington Post

Mitch McConnell made his mark on Black History Month early, by figuratively slapping Senator Elizabeth Warren down on the Senate floor -- as she tried to read a letter written by Coretta Scott King opposing Attorney General Jeff Sessions back when he was under consideration for a federal judgeship in 1986. As important as the letter is to the dialogue over racism then and now, it was only a tiny part of the leadership and legacy of Coretta Scott King herself. She was a peace activist,...

The Use of the "F-Word" in Book Titles
13 February 2017 | 5:30 pm Books - The Huffington Post

While the use of the F-word in books, movies and other media is now as common as oxygen, I recently read that it is now making its way more than ever into the actual titles of books, and is becoming a prominent feature in their cover designs, certainly destined for even greater proliferation. To those of us who grew up unaccustomed to that infamous word as a descriptive expletive, it does come with a wink and a gulp. When I was growing up during the depression in Brooklyn, the verbal or...

Book Passage in Sausalito: A New Outlet Offers Hope, Community, and Yes, Books
9 February 2017 | 3:59 pm Books - The Huffington Post

In these strange and often scary (but rebellious!) times, I'm sure I'm not the only one finding hopeful signs in whatever I can: a new baby, a sunny day, the fact that books by Rep. John Lewis, George Orwell, Sinclair Lewis, and, most recently, the long-departed Frederick Douglass are flying off the shelves (a small upside to having the country's least-literate president in office). And speaking of books, the literary website Lithub.com (highly recommended!), taking note of "the growing number...

Creativity Frozen? How to Start Writing Again After a Long Hiatus
7 February 2017 | 1:47 pm Books - The Huffington Post

A confession: I stopped writing fiction for two months recently--the first time I have ever stumbled to a complete halt. Why? The usual reasons: 1. THE ELECTION. I couldn't focus on fiction when truth seemed so much stranger. 2. HOLIDAYS. Let's admit it: for women writers, holidays are time and brain drains. 3. DOUBT. I had sent the first 200 pages of my new novel to my agent. Her response? "Um, no." 4. MONEY. Life isn't getting any cheaper and fiction isn't any getting any easier to sell....


The Mainstreaming of the Word
7 February 2017 | 12:32 pm Books - The Huffington Post

I grew up among writers. My father was a journalist for the London Times, who later went on to write seventeen books. My mother was an editor at Faber and Faber. T.S. Eliot sat in the next office to my Mum. Back in the 1960s, publishing was known as "the gentleman's profession." Deals were made with handshakes, and the decision to publish was made entirely on the merit of the work -- the quality of the word. What else could there possibly be? "And every phrase And sentence that is right...

Lear's Cosmic Constant
7 February 2017 | 10:42 am Books - The Huffington Post

Shakespeare's Lear starts off at the edge of a cliff and jumps. That's essentially the plot of the play. If Lear had his marbles, he never would have made his outrageous demand. Perhaps his disinhibition is the first stage of senile dementia. Things never improve which is. in effect. the nature of matter. Once man is born his death begins. Something comes out of nothing and nothing comes out of something. Lear: "Nothing will come of nothing" (I,ii), Gloucester: "The quality of nothing hath not...
