As a successful publisher and best-selling author, Michael Korda is uniquely suited to produce a witty and informed look at publishing and American culture through a decade-by-decade study of the bestseller lists of the twentieth century. But his format creates a peculiar problem for a narrator, as Korda's analyses are followed by the lists for each year in question. Ingeniously, Davidson handles these as if he were broadcasting a sporting event, with sometimes a hint of Howard Cosell or even of Walter Winchell in the delivery. Interesting book; very clever performance. B.G. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
