Backscratching In Our Times

Taking inspiration from former Spy magazine, Janice Harayda at One Minute Book Reviews is adding a feature to her site: recipricol praise from authors providing blurbs for each other’s book.

For example, in her review of “Marley and Me,” she notes this amazing coincidence: two authors who love each others works:

Jon Katz on John Grogan: “Expect to laugh, cry and shake your head as you read this book … Marley is a great and memorable dog, and in the hands of a writer as observant, unsentimental and piercing as Grogan, this is a human-canine journey dog lovers will want to take.”

John Grogan on Jon Katz: “Jon Katz understands dogs as few others do, intuitively and unburdened by sentimentality. His keen insights cut to the heart of the human-pet relationship – it’s immense joys and painful sorrows.”
