Don't read Anne Tyler for an adventure novel...
...read her for her exquisite subtlety. Read her for her extremely human characters. Those who don't like this novel are right- it's slow, it doesn't have the textbook happy ending, and the main character is far from perfect. But that's WHY I read Anne Tyler's novels. I love her attention to detail. Just like me, her characters, though trying to do their best, are flawed. I must admit, ...

The Compass of Zen (Shambhala Dragon Editions)
Only dharma talks
I first saw the hand-printed Compass of Zen at the Cambridge (MA) Zen Center years ago. Try to imagine just the Chinese characters and translations at the head of each chapter in this book -- that's all there was. At least one Japanese Zen Master looked at it and said it contained everything a Zen student needed to learn about Buddhism. This book is a compilation of ZMSS's talks on the ...

The Silver Compass
A Wonderful Book
I was eagerly waiting for Holly Kennedy's third book. I loved The Tin Box and The Penny Tree so much. The Silver Compass came in the mail yesterday afternoon and I just opened it up to glance inside.

True Compass: A Memoir
Edward M. Kennedy
Twelve/Hachette Book Group
Sailing through life
I have to admit from the start: I am not a fan of Edward Kennedy, or of the Kennedy family in general. But with Kennedy's autobiography "True Compass: A Memoir," I did my best to embrace objectivity. And it's an interesting albeit deeply flawed book -- a look at the slow decline of a once-powerful political dynasty, vast world changes, and a world that changed drastically due to war and ...
