Commenting Guidelines

  • All

Glad Patricia Hampl's review of Suitable Accommodations (the collected letters of J. F. Powers) is not restricted to subscribers.

Mollie's review of the Little House books is restricted.  

For those who remember Nellie Oleson on the t.v. show, I recommend Allison Arngrim's book, Confessions of a Prairie Bitch:  How I Survived Nellie Oleson and Learned to Love Being Hated.
