    Everything is over for Simon Axler. One of the leading American stage actors of his generation, now in his 60s, he has lost his magic, his talent, and his assurance. His Falstaff and Peer Gynt and Vanya, all his great roles, "are melted into air, into thin air". When he goes on stage he feels like a lunatic and looks like an idiot. His confidence in his powers has drained away; he imagines people laughing at him; he can no longer pretend to be someone else.

    "The Humbling humbles"
    Overall

    I found this Phillip Roth book uninteresting and hard to follow. Not one of the best of Roth's endeavors.

    The year is 2008 and Samantha Kofer's career at a huge Wall Street law firm is on the fast track - until the recession hits and she gets downsized, furloughed, escorted out of the building. Samantha, though, is one of the "lucky" associates. She's offered an opportunity to work at a legal aid clinic for one year without pay, after which there would be a slim chance that she'd get her old job back. In a matter of days Samantha moves from Manhattan to Brady, Virginia, population 2,200, in the heart of Appalachia, a part of the world she has only read about.

    What did you like best about Gray Mountain? What did you like least?

    I just couldn't follow it.


    What didn’t you like about Catherine Taber’s performance?

    She has a nice voice, but I found it very difficult to understand her. I tried, but it just didn't work.


    Did Gray Mountain inspire you to do anything?

    No

    An innocent man is about to be executed. Only a guilty man can save him. Travis Boyette is such a man. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high-school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.

    Overall

    Grisham has written probably his best book yet, and I have read and loved them all. Basically, he exposes the Texas system of executing criminals, the highest percentage of any other state. An innocent man is in prison, awaiting execution. The real killer shows up and involves a local pastor in his apparent need to save the innocent man and confess that he is the real killer. Many parts of this story are very sensitive. Exposes a lot of corruption in the city government in a small town in Texas. Keep your Kleenex handy.
