I thought my old employer might ask me to review for them, but the Los Angeles Review of Books beat them to it … and I couldn’t be happier. I had a chance to really stretch out in the LARB in a review of Barry Strauss’ retelling of the greatest assassination of the Roman world, The Death of Caesar.
It felt good, really good, to write for someone else again. I’ve provided the link below for your reading pleasure, my beloved friends. It also felt good — in light of Scott Timberg’s views of the embattled literary industry (see previous recent posts) — to contribute to a very worthy publishing venture during very turbulent times for the world of arts and letters.
Whether you live in or out of the City of Angels, I encourage you to subscribe and lend your support.
