    4. Lots of material, so it's a little hit-or-miss, and quite a few skirt the formal criticism line that the editor seemed intent on avoiding, but plenty of highlights: the one on Salinger and suicide, the ones on Kafka and Dostoevsky, the Czech poet I hadn't heard of, and also the couple that took a negative view of their subjects.

    5. This collection of 'creative criticism' is a good place to begin exploring the possibilities of the book review format
