The NYTBR keeps in-house notes about the books we've skipped. Often these boil down to "Too many good books, not enough review space." But not always.
- •Cute, meandering, somewhat self-indulgent.
- •Hopelessly French.
- •Dull, dull, dull.
- •Playful but abstruse.
- •More Holocaust stuff.
- •Only for obsessives.
- •Overwhelmingly long and detailed.
- •A footnote.
- •What is there left to say?
