    No surprise here: Tina Fey, whose screenwriting spans “Saturday Night Live,” “Mean Girls,” and “30 Rock,” has quite a knack for writing. Borrowing from her background as a sketch comedian and a scriptwriter, Fey pens Bossypants as something resembling a two-hour “SNL” script: an ...

    The 1920s were a remarkable decade for America – a time remembered as much for the promiscuous antics of its teens as for the exploitative antics of its well-to-do businessmen. It was the first decade in which men and women could date without parental supervision; the first time that Henry Ford’...

    It took just the copyright page to discover that Robert K. Massie's Peter the Great: His Life and World is an oddity.

    I was never one to rise early for the kid-famous epoch of Saturday morning cartoons. Beset by the likes of The Weekenders and Recess, and later, Hannah Montana and That’s So Raven, the time slot amassed an assortment of Disney-dominated programming that followed a near-indistinguishable set-up.

    The greatest asset brought by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin’s political exposé of the “game changing” 2008 presidential election is its uncanny ability to translate the stories of determined politicians into an adventurous novel about conquest, compulsion, competition, and catch-22’s. Un...
