1-21 LUCE REVIEW
January 21, 2001
When Walt Whitman wrote “In this head the all baffling brain/in it and below it the making of heroes,” near the middle of “I Sing the Body Electric,” he probably didn’t imagine that more than a century later Chris Adrian would use a fictionalized portrayal of Big Daddy Walt as a human battery to bring back the dead of the Civil War. In “Gob’s Grief” (Broadway, $24.95), Adrian employs the quirks and hopes of our human heads to address the baffling nature of grief, obsession and how, individually and collectively, we forge heroes. Unfortunately, Adrian’s uneven novel shorts out repeatedly — the result of poor pacing, little psychological insight and lackluster prose.

CLINTON WAS A GOOD PRESIDENT, DESPITE HIS SEXUAL EXPLOITS

And there are those who, instead of admiring Clinton for his setting aside of forest land hate him for it. I praise him for it, just as I praised him when we drove through the Escalante Grand Staircase National Monument last summer and remembered the people in Utah (still my home country) who were maddened because his action took away their plans to exploit the area.
