Up Front

September 30, 1990

How refreshing!

Not one, but two book reviews (Sept. 9) that tell the reader what the book is about in the first paragraph. No need to read a column before finding a reference to the book being reviewed.

Lynn Hunt starts right out telling us that "The Quest for El Cid" "is a book about the relation between myth and history" and so forth. About "Lies of Silence," Richard Eder begins: "It is all there, perhaps too plainly there, in the title," etc.

Congratulations to them and to you. Lets have more of the same.
