 Tatjana Soli’s haunting debut novel begins where it ought to end. In this quietly mesmerizing book about journalists covering the war in Vietnam, the first glimpses of the place are the most familiar. The year is 1975. Americans are in a state of panic as North Vietnamese forces prepare to occupy...

I feel sorry for rich people. According to an article in The New York Times, the wealthy have been living in “self-imposed austerity” for almost a year. Turns out, frugality is fatiguing. The rich are now absolutely itching to spend some money but remain concerned that any obvious displays of...

There's not a whole lot Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Jane Smiley and I have in common. There's that prize, for one thing. She's extraordinarily tall, I'm extraordinarily short. Even our names are of wildly different lengths - I've got her whole 10-digit name beat with my hyphenated last name...
