Dave Wood's Book Report, April 29, 2009
A wag of my acquaintance once said that word processors are ruining the art of biography. He explained that it's so easy to type on them (no carriage return, no worries of hyphenation, etc.), that "if Moses had one, there'd be 17 commandments rather than 10." In some ways it's true....

Dave Wood's Book Report, April 22, 2009
As I've mentioned before, I love to read books that embrace a specific locale. In fact I got started reading when I was in high school and someone told me about Sinclair Lewis, a writer who grew up in a small town, like me.

Sports, restaurants and graphic novels make a variety of good reads. Baseball is getting underway, so for a behind-the-scenes look could I suggest "Under the March Sun: The Story of Spring Training," by Charles Fountain (Oxford University Press, $24.95)? Northeastern University...

Award-winning Minnesota poet Larry Schug just sent me his new book, a gem called "Arrogant Bones,"(North Star Press, $12.95). Schug works at the College of St. Benedict, by St. John's University, where Sen. and poet Eugene McCarthy went to schools. Schug's down-to-earth, sardonic...

A new book sheds new light on a well-known historical educator. "Up from History: The Life of Booker T. Washington," by Robert J. Norell (Harvard University Press, $35) is a fine new look at a historical figure who has suffered a bad rap for too long. Booker T. Washington has taken...

Years ago, I saw a wonderful Twilight Zone episode in which a small time newspaper editor sold his soul to the devil in order to save his newspaper. The devil was played by Burgess Meredith, who arrives at the newspaper and tells the hero he is a linotype operator and would like to...
