The Saga Continues.
A copy of Sandra Day
O’Connor’s new book, Out Of Order came into my hands. It came through a
tortured, circuitous route – – sampans, caravans, tramp steamers and the like.
Actually it just involved a trip on the M15 bus. Her book, a nonfiction work
about the Supreme Court, intrigues me because it has a wonderful title. Which
just happens to resonate with the title of my novel, Out Of Order.
The New York Times
reviewer, Adam Liptak, gave the retired Supreme Court Justice a less than
charitable verdict in his summation.
He is the paper’ s Supreme Court correspondent and I suspect he was looking for
something incisive and illuminating rather than the cheerful chat it apparently
is. My next task is to read the book – – not for the purpose of judging it, but
just to see how her Out Of Order compares with my Out Of Order.
