So here I am, on the publicity side of book publishing, and I have to say, things look quite different from over here. I've been the books editor at the Strib for two years. Every day I get dozens of books in the mail, and every day I have to make fast decisions as to which ones might get reviewed. The odds are grim: I get about a thousand books a month, and I have room in the paper to review about nine per week. This means that an awful lot of wonderful books go unmentioned.
