Seventeen Reviewed

Matt Kahn continues to blog about “100 Years. 94 Books.” His goal… to read and review every book to top the year’s best sellers list at Publisher’s Weekly since 1913. You can visit Kahn’s blog for a complete list of the 94 titles (some, like Gone With the Wind, topped the list in more than one year). This week he published his review of Seventeen (1916), the second of Tarkington’s two titles to top the PW list. His impressions are mixed.


The Turmoil Reviewed

I told you a couple weeks ago about Matt Kahn, who is blogging about “100 Years. 94 Books.” His goal is to read and review every book to top the year’s best sellers list at Publisher’s Weekly since 1913. You can visit Kahn’s blog for a complete list of the 94 titles (some, like Gone With the Wind, topped the list in more than one year). This week he published his review of The Turmoil (1915), the first of Tarkington’s two titles to top the PW list. His impressions are pretty favorable.
