Book Review: The Blue Flower

The story focuses on twenty-two-year-old Fritz who becomes enchanted with the twelve-year-old Sophie von Kühn and asks for her hand in marriage. No one can understand the attraction. Fritz is educated and comes from a family of substance, whereas Sophie is termed a dullard without means or money.

Book Review: In Cold Blood by Truman Capote

I found In Cold Blood in an antique store in Nehalem, Oregon and thought it might be worthwhile to read. I love to read books when the marketing hoopla is over and I can assess if the book can stand on its own merits. In Cold Blood has stood the test of time. 

Book Review: Cornered by Barry C. Lynn

These behemoth powers are actually destroying the free and open market place, which is at very heart of our democracy.

Book Review: The Sea, the Sea by Iris Murdoch

Hold on and keep yourself afloat for a stormy ride on the northwest coast of England. Shakespearean Actor and Director Charles Arrowby has left the glamorous theater world of London to retire in a damp drafty home by the sea, presumably to write his memoir. As the narrator/protagonist, Charles Arrowby rants with the tireless exasperation of a self-obsessed madman. He craves solitude, yet a surreal cast of characters from his former life in theater appears and reappears, coming and going like the ebb and flow of a churning sea.

Book Review: The Curse of Bigness

The Curse of Bigness, by Columbia University Law Professor Tim Wu, examines the monopolization movement through the lens of antitrust law, primarily the Sherman Antitrust Act from its inception in 1890 to today. This slim book tackles an enormous and complex problem in succinct narrative that is fluid and technically precise. Short on jargon and big on describing constitutional history in simple terms, you don’t have to be an antitrust lawyer to understand how corporate monopolies are dictating the course of economic policy in America.
