Joan Wickersham http://kmuw.org en Book Review: The News From Spain http://kmuw.org/post/book-review-news-spain <p>While you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, the illustration on the cover&nbsp;of the <em>The News from Spain</em> by Joan Wickersham is somewhat telling of what's inside. A single red ribbon on a black background ties each of the stories together&nbsp;through theme and repeated phrases. The ribbon flows with&nbsp;no bows or knots, bleeding off the page. Similar in design, these stories are not wrapped in tidy packages. Sometimes they begin with no introduction and end abruptly, leaving the reader to speculate about what will happen next.</p> Mon, 22 Oct 2012 10:00:00 +0000 Beth Golay 7344 at http://kmuw.org Book Review: The News From Spain
