SOME HEADLINES I NEVER USED

I started in the Book Review as a copy editor, where one of my jobs was writing "label heds" for the reviews I worked on. A lot of suggestions never made it into print; I recently came across the notebook where I had jotted them down, minus any context from the original reviews.
