Literature, Poetry, and Books

Culture Vulture Alert

Cancel your regular Sunday paper subscription and read the Wall Street Journal Friday and Saturday editions instead.  Its books and culture sections are far superior to anything in the NY Times and WaPo, for example.  Theater criticTerry Teachout is the most instructive writer on the performing arts in America.  (See Peter's notes on Teachout's Pops.)  It's too bad past movie critic Martha Bayles is no longer with them, having moved upward to the Claremont Review of Books. Such splendor comes of owner Rupert Murdoch's laudable ambition to destroy the NY Times

With the WSJ, CRB, and the Weekly Standard's often ingenious book review section, thoughtful readers will find a generous store of books and reviewers to pick from.  But first the political season.

Agreed, except I think movie critic, Joe Morgenstern, is also excellent: always spot-on in his critiques.

Cancel my paper? Ha! How will I read the Sunday funnies? Heck, that's the only part I read in the Sunday paper anyway (well, that and the Rite-Aid advert. St. Pauli Girl 12-pack, $9.99, hmmmm)

Where will my wife get her coupons?
