A Writer's Journal

Alan's haunting novel of the AIDS epidemic, As If Death Summoned, was released on December 1, 2020, World AIDS Day, and can be ordered at your favorite bookstore or from any online bookseller (418 pp) Paperback, $18.95, e-Book, $9.99. Read the reviews here.




The shortest book review I ever read was for David Leavitt's 1998 novel, The Page Turner.

"It's not."

 

I admire Leavitt's writing and suggest that one would do better to start with his novel, The Lost Language of Cranes (1986), or his short story collection, Family Dancing (1984).
