About This Blog

The Longest Chapter is a blog about my journey with books, the longest chapter of my now middle-aged life. What you’ll find here is the content of that journey, including reviews and comments on new releases, as well as recommendations for books from the past, classics as well as the many terrific books packed into library stacks or bookstore aisles.

Many of the books that appear on The Longest Chapter I discuss and/or review on WOSU Public Media 89.7 FM, broadcasting throughout central Ohio. WOSU is an NPR member station, and I am the station’s book critic.
