About meBeen reviewing nonfiction here since its inception. Usually two a week, but up to five at times. I have taken the striking bits of what I've written and woven them into 16 essays. The book is called The Straight Dope, or What I learned from my first thousand nonfiction reviews. Pls see

About my libraryAll of Benchley and Perelman in first editions. Lots of Algonquin Roundtable, biographies and rare humor books. I try to keep it to 500 books so it doesn't force me out of my home. All the nonfiction you see me reviewing here is by e-ARC and they vaporize after 60 days. So it's important that my reviews allow me to remember the book's impact (if any) in a comprehensive review that gets to the bottom of it. Or at least, that's why I keep doing it.
