Book Review Astonish Me
by Leah Greenblatt | Apr 01, 2014

''With Astonish Me, (Shipstead) plunges readers into a wildly different but equally arcane sect of skinny, high-strung humans: professional ballet dancers. In their world, ability, not breeding, determines the caste system — which doesn't bode well for the romance of young corps member Joan Joyce and star principal Arslan Rusakov, the dazzling defector she helps smuggle into the U.S from pre-perestroika Russia.''

Book Review Frog Music
by Leah Greenblatt | Mar 26, 2014

''Donoghue builds her world so well that Frog's first half goes by like a music-box waltz. It starts to stumble a little, though, when Blanche, who has a mustache-twirling scoundrel of a lover and some very complicated maternity issues, makes choices better suited to a damsel in a dime-store novel.''

Book Review Thirty Girls
by Leah Greenblatt | Feb 12, 2014

''Thirty Girls takes a real-life atrocity — the 1996 abduction of a group of Ugandan schoolgirls by the Lord's Resistance Army — and novelizes it through the eyes of two starkly different narrators: 15-year-old Esther Akello, one of the "stolen ones," and thirtysomething New York writer Jane Wood, who comes to Africa to escape her existential malaise as much as to document what has happened there.''
