One-Minute Book Reviews covers books by all kinds of authors — “from presidents and kings to the scum of the earth,” as Lily Tomlin’s Ernestine might say. It seeks especially to provide parity for several groups often slighted by other media, including women, poets, and authors of books fron small presses or other countries. At least 50 percent of all reviews deal with books by women. Reviews typically alternate on a female author/male author basis.

“Fairness to women does not mean pretending that every female author is the next Jane Austen. Fairness to women is treating pretty good female authors the way you would treat pretty good male authors.”
