Play review: <i>Dial L for Latch-Key</i> by Scott Fivelson


the cover of the book

You'll wish you could see Dial L for Latch-Key in a theatre near you immediately after reading this little gem, because then you'd be sitting in a theatre laughing with other people, as opposed to snickering quietly to yourself alone.

Book review: <i>Blind Faith</i> by Ben Elton


the cover of the book

When did Ben Elton go from funny social commentator with a penchant for satiric wit to a bitter, bitter old man? Even if you've been in denial for a while, Blind Faith is terribly disappointing.

If this was an art installation, it would be a functioning concept-SUV made out of tofu.

Book review: <i>Catch-22</i> by Joseph Heller



If this was adapted as a sitcom after its first printing in 1961, it would have become Hogan’s Heroes. Does all mainstream satire eventually become a joke about itself? Discuss.
