Books on Monday: Chang and Eng

There’s an interesting story behind my reading this book, but I’m not sure that I ought to tell it. I has something to do with my Book Review reviews, which in several cases have elicited emails from authors. Only once, so far, however, have I been contacted by a reviewer. Which is both a surprise and not a surprise. After all, I don’t go after books and their authors; I go after reviewers who don’t do their job. But in the end the authors have more reason to follow up than reviewers do. I might actually buy a book; I’ve already paid for the review.

In any case, I wish it happened more often.
