February 16, 2003 | Ben Lytal, Ben Lytal is a writer whose work has appeared in the New Yorker and the New York Sun.
This book embarrasses -- it puts a bar in one's way. At a time when poets are being installed as heads of the National Endowment for the Arts and Guggenheim Foundation, and as Ruth Lilly leaves $100 million to Poetry magazine, American poetry looks like a stable, established tradition, a pat slide show beginning with Robert Frost and ending with Billy Collins. But what, in the words of this book's author, about "great American sass"?

HOME & GARDEN

When artist Jonathan Williams and writer Kim Pesenti bought their property in 2004, the couple were drawn to the vibrant street life of Echo Park but envisioned a rural retreat within, a home that responded to the landscape rather than conquered it. "We didn't want it to be imposing," Williams says of their 1,700-square-foot house. "We wanted it to be modest."

January 22, 1995 | Margo Kaufman, Margo Kaufman is Book Review's official royal-watcher
This may not be the bottom of the barrel, as the saying goes, but you can certainly reach out and touch it from here. I have never been able to resist a book with a royal title in its title, but after reading the latest crop of books about the equally vapid, egocentric and whiny Prince and Princess of Wales I wanted to rinse my brain out with soap. The Prince and Princess seemed to have summoned all the Knights of the Word Processor in the Kingdom and held a tournament to see who could write the dullest, least informative, most unflattering book.

South Carolina defensive end Eric Norwood tied an NCAA mark with two touchdown returns and Steve Spurrier improved to 15-0 all-time against No. 8 Kentucky in the 11th-ranked Gamecocks' 38-23 victory Thursday night at Columbia, S.C.
