On the Web

This week at, Ed Park's Astral Weeks looks at "Apollo's Song," a manga by Osamu Tezuka, and "To the Dark Star 1962-69" by science fiction master Robert Silverberg. Both books address our need for repetition and the way it informs our interactions, most fundamentally that of love.

Also on the Web, look for expanded bestsellers and literary event listings, as well as Jacket Copy,, our books and publishing blog.
