     Place your angle of vision under a coffee table in a doctor’s waiting room.  Let’s assume it’s an upscale, upper East Side place with Mies Van der Rohe chrome and leather banquettes.  Let’s make the carpeting a Silva Bruns design.  Not a familiar name?  All right, change it to the ubiquitous...

In the current Library Journal, my forthcoming Palestinian crime novel, THE FOURTH ASSASSIN (out Feb. 1) gets a good review that highlights the themes and implications beyond the solving of the mystery. For those who don't have a copy of the magazine (in which case you'll have missed the award for...

If you're over 30 you probably don’t yearn to recapture 20-something days of gritty uncertainty. It’s even less appealing if you’re from the tail end of the Baby Boom, a generation gap in itself. My birth year alone meant I’d always occupy an entry-level position in that cultural generation. Last...

Hey All, I am a writer from New York City — and I'd love to start a writing group where people can come together, share work and publishing techniques. I'm an editor of a literary journal (www.caperjournal.com) and have just completed a manuscript. I've been published on several journals and want...

I'd been on the move for a decade when I reviewed Pico Iyer’s Tropical Classical for the Far Eastern Economic Review, Asia’s pioneering newsweekly magazine closed by its owner Dow Jones this week. …first I’d escaped the radical provincialism of my hometown by shipping off to a ruggedly urbane...

     So I’m sitting here in the idyllic countryside of a Maine August morning, leafing through a rather elderly issue of New York Magazine, checking out an article prosaically entitled “How Loud.. .”  which offers up a handy guide to decibels for jackhammers, taxi horns,...

Last night, I ventured out in the biblical rain that has lasted fourteen, now fifteen, days to go to a book signing by columnist Robert Scheer which is at the local Unitarian Church, three miles away.       Granted, I've scrupulously avoided Ygnacio Valley Blvd., a thoroughfare that makes Madison...

  I’ve been asked, "Were you an editorial writer in the past or are you one now?" and regretfully I have had to say "No". What I like to write about is at times definitely controversial, othertimes, humorous or informative. This blog will disturb some, but my intention is to...
