I just wrote the post below, then saw that the page-long Sunday review by Marilyn Stasio is already online. Here’s the link to it. As I hint below, as a working novelist I’m pleased as punch that it exists, no matter the opinions within it. And as I also mentioned, Kevin Holtsberry has already laid out his opinions of the review.

from "the bowery boys: new york city history"

(For a different NYT take, Janet Maslin’s review is here.)

Opinions either way? As I said below, I’m largely in agreement with Kevin’s perspective, but if anyone out there has read The Tourist and feels strongly one way or the other, feel free to comment. I am, if nothing else, a glutton for punishment!
