This novel's protagonist is the reluctant spy Milo Weaver. He followed that book up with a couple more to form a trilogy. By the time we get to the third book the story lines are so complex that we almost feel the need to create wall charts to keep track of the action. Almost. Steinhauer writes intricate stories that dazzle and entertain.</p> Fri, 18 Apr 2014 17:15:00 +0000 Vick Mickunas 48707 at http://wyso.org Book Nook: The Cairo Affair, by Olen Steinhauer Roosevelt Reads: April 2014 http://wyso.org/post/roosevelt-reads-april-2014 <p></p><p><em>Roosevelt Reads is a monthly column in Antioch College's online publication, <a href="http://enews.antiochcollege.org/2014/03/volume-4-issue-3">The Independent</a>.&nbsp; </em></p><p>There are some things you have to look away from if you are going to make it through the day and stay sane. The human population explosion and the extinction crisis among other species is such a topic for me, although I have not stopped reading about it. I recently finished Stephen Meyer’s The End of the Wild and Elizabeth Kolbert’s The Sixth Extinction. But I am not ready to write about it.</p> Thu, 17 Apr 2014 18:15:03 +0000 Mark Roosevelt 48660 at http://wyso.org Roosevelt Reads: April 2014 Book Nook: On The Flyleaf, by Herbert Woodward Martin (Part 2) http://wyso.org/post/book-nook-flyleaf-herbert-woodward-martin-part-2 <p></p><p>Professor Martin returns for a second session on the program so we can talk about Herb's long held affection for the poetry of Dayton's greatest poet, Paul Laurence Dunbar.
