Man on Fire

Author: A.J. Quinnell,

Review by: bpolite46, Peshtigo Branch Public Library

This is an excellent read, released in 1980.   A movie with the same title was also done, with Denzel Washington as John Creasy.   Because I enjoyed the story and the character of John Creasy in the movie, I read the book.  I was not disapointed.   The book takes place in Italy and has a different twist than the movie.   I recommend both.  This is a read that can be of interest to men, women, and older teens.   If you...

Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake

Author: Anna Quindlen

Review by: dianevantassel, Appleton Public Library

Fans of Quindlen and women over forty will appreciate this collection of essays on motherhood, careers, and aging. Quindlen has a style that makes writing look easy- a way of putting into words ideas many of us, especially women, have pondered. She can be sarcastic and heartwarming in the same piece. Quindlen, now in her early 60's, has been a reporter, Newsweek columnist, novelist, and mom. I'm looking...
