    Review: 'The Brothers' by Masha Gessen
    "How could they do this?" When a bomb goes off, killing three and wounding 264, that's the question we all ask. It's a question we ask over and over, whenever shocking acts of violence are committed; we rarely get answers — and when we do, they...

  • Comic book roundup: 'Borb' by Jason Little, others

    Comic book roundup: 'Borb' by Jason Little, others
    Borb by Jason Little, Uncivilized, 98 pages, $19.95 It's odd to call Jason Little's chilling chronicle of the physical and mental debilitation of an alcoholic homeless city dweller a "comic" when it's so purely tragic. Little references the inky,...
