I began publishing book reviews in the 1990s in the newsletter of John Neal, Bookseller, and workshop and exhibit reviews in calligraphy and book art guild journals. I have gathered several of these here that were published at a later time on my old website, Prose and Letters. Original publication date is noted at the end, and updated ordering information if relevant.

I recently (here in 2022) found these on an old hard drive, in a folder entitled “cari articles.” This was my way of making myself small. In those days, I also thought of myself as a writer, with a small “w.” As you can see in the header of this website, I have claimed myself as a Writer now. These reviews were when I rediscovered my joy in composing fine sentences. Reading them is like visiting an old friend who knew me back in the day.

New book reviews coming as I have time to write them!
