Here's the start of Emily Barton's review of Jim Crace's new book "The Pesthouse":
JIM CRACE is among the most inventive writers working in English today, a talent that was recognized when he won the National Book Critics Circle Award in 2000 for "Being Dead." "Quarantine," about Jesus' sojourn in the desert, and "Continent," a series of linked stories concerning a fictional continent, are among my favorite books by living authors, chiefly because of the breadth of Crace's creative intelligence. Although his writing can be uneven at times — "Arcadia" and "Genesis" leave me cold — a mind that could conceive of "The Gift of Stones," which dramatizes the transition from Stone Age to Bronze Age, is a unique and brilliant one.

An Introduction to Planetary Defense: A Study of Modern Warfare Applied to Extra-Terrestrial Invasion is written by Travis Taylor and Bob Boan. In a nutshell, "You'd have to create an insurgency, a mujahideen-type resistance."
"Boris Yeltsin was always good for a laugh, which is probably why on the occasion of his death people outside of Russia are not calling him words like scum and monster, but instead recalling him fondly, with a smile, as one would a retarded nephew who could always be counted on to pull his pants down at Thanksgiving dinner."
Read the rest, this first paragraph is mild.
