Complete list of book reviews by author

The looooooong list of reviews extending all down the left side of the blog was getting just a bit unmanageable, so I've moved the list here, in its very own separate post. Below, organized by author, are all of the proper reviews (and a few improper ones) that I've published on this blog. Click on an author's name to see all the reviews for that author.

And in the process of shifting the list here, I discovered that five or six authors were missing. I had reviewed them but never added links to the reviews. Oops. So, I have rectified that now and this list is truly complete.

  1. I'm going to read my way through the list. I know some authors, but there are many who are brand new to me.

  2. Have you read Honor Tracy? She seems to have been mostly forgotten....her novels were published between 1954 and 1979. Beautifully written, very funny, though perhaps offensive to those who romanticize Ireland and the Irish. The Straight and Narrow Path made her name, but her last book, The Ballad of Castle Reef,(1979) is my favorite.

  3. Oh, and I don't see Nancy Mitford on your list. How can that be?

    1. This is only the list of authors I've actually reviewed on the blog. Check out The Overwhelming List, link in the left column of the blog, for the whole list of authors I've come across. It's MUCH larger (i.e. overwhelming indeed), and both Tracy and Mitford are included. I haven't managed to read Tracy yet, though I have a couple of her books, and I'm afraid my attempts to read Mitford haven't paid off. I rarely write negative reviews, especially of well-known authors, but a while back I confessed to a few of my failures, and included Mitford along with du Maurier, because I figured they both have so many followers, no one can possibly mind if I don't jump on the bandwagon!


NOTE: The comment function on Blogger is notoriously cranky. If you're having problems, try selecting "Name/URL" or "Anonymous" from the "Comment as" drop-down (be sure to "sign" your comment, though, so I know who dropped by). Some people also find it easier using a browser like Firefox or Chrome instead of Internet Explorer.

But it can still be a pain, and if you can't get any of that to work, please email me at furrowed.middlebrow@gmail.com. I do want to hear from you!
