I'm a school social worker in special education and a professor of social work education, but I love to read and write. I'm writing book reviews because it is interesting, important, and fun. "Reading, after all, is an act of resistance in a landscape of distraction, a matter of enagement in a society that seems to want nothing more than for us to disengage." (David Ulin,The Lost Art of Reading), and a good page of prose, as John Cheever described, remains invincible. I agree.
