Have a heart for Roiphe’s past

On Head Butler: 5.12.11

I can’t be the only person smitten by Anne Roiphe’s Art and Madness: A Memoir of Lust Without Reason. The New York Public Library has forty-one copies of the book in branches from 67th Street to Todt Hill-Westerleigh, and as of this writing, only thirteen are available. Forty-one copies! Why do so many people want to read Roiphe’s book?

Read my review of Roiphe’s memoir on Head Butler — my blogging home away from home.

This week on Bookpod Audio: Loving a mentally ill mother. Linda Appleman Shapiro talks about Four Rooms, Upstairs, the memoir she wrote about growing up in the 1940s and 1950s with an immigrant mother who suffered from depression. 6-min. mp3
