The Week In Catastrophe: Health Care, Hurricane Katrina, 25 Year-Old Thrice-Published Novelists


Books this week are all about devastation: There are a few about our economy and health care system, oh and one that is a chilling testament to the impossibly tragic early onslaught of ennui that befalls New York City private school kids every year. Plus, it is also the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, a terrible American disaster.
