The two latest additions to our list of books-with-micro-reviews are slim volumes. One is Alan Bennett's (2007) delightful fantasy The uncommon reader, about how Queen Elizabeth II comes, at a late stage in her life, to fall so much in love with reading that this pursuit usurps (if that is the right verb) all her other interests and commitments. The other is How fiction works, by James Wood (2008) an influential critic who has written for The Guardian, The New York Review of Books, The New Yorker, etc. His book has been reviewed at length by Rohan Maitzen, whose site you can reach by clicking here.
