LEITER LOOKS AT BOOKS: 1-11

 


LEITER LOOKS AT BOOKS

As many readers of this blog know, I began the year with regular postings on THEATER'S LEITER SIDE called NOTES ON RECENT READINGS, in which I discussed books I was reading, new and old. That series morphed into a weekly column on THEATER PIZZAZZ called LEITER LOOKS AT BOOKS, which included some of the books I'd already covered while also adding new ones. The following list is for those who might wish to see what's been written about so far. I will continue to update it as new entries make their appearance. Click on any book to find it on LEITER LOOKS AT BOOKS.
