Chicago Book Review + an unhappy conservative

Chicago Book Review

This is a masterful effort. The Confessions of Frances Godwin should be at the top of the to-read list for fans of Hellenga’s work. For those who are new to his work, it still should be at the top of that to-read list. (Read the whole review at the Chicago Book Review — 19 August 2014.)


And from an unhappy conservative:

Just read The Confessions of Frances Godwin.  Enjoyed most of the book.  Tiresome proving of leftist credibility in the brief scene when Frances is choosing a mortuary for her husband.  Concerned about a REPUBLICAN ?  Be serious! In an area of Polish, Italians etc?  Reality is this is chosen by ethnicity and convenience.   
Sometime I think that leftists don't think.  More new writing is spoiled by the gas they breathe and don't even see.
