The CCLaP 100: “Middlemarch,” by George Eliot
Today in the CCLaP 100 essay series on literary classics: It's George Eliot's 1874 "Middlemarch," a complex and multifaceted human-interest story in the style of "Downton Abbey," applauded for bringing academic respect to the novel format for one of the first times in history.

Your micro-review roundup: 28 August 2012
Today at CCLaP, short reviews of four recently read books: Richard Russo's hilarious 1997 comedy about academia, "Straight Man;" "At Random: The Reminiscences of Bennett Cerf," by the co-founder of Random House and one of the most surprisingly fascinating books I've read in years; and the brilliant soft-apocalypse thrillers "The Dewey Decimal System" and "The Nervous System" by Shudder To Think guitarist Nathan Larson, likely to make the center's best of the year list in December.
