    We do. Needless to say, Berberova slapped that bitch down. In Russian the title is, if not shocking, then certainly blunt. And because he's both fair and objective, there is something in this book to infuriate nearly everyone.

    It is a strangely opaque piece, one that does not entirely work, and yet as haunting as anything in this remarkable collection. Warren St. Maria is everything Sonechka is not, glamorous, flamboyant. Her voice brings with it "something immortal and indisputable, something which gives reality to the human being's dream of having wings. In this instance, "The Tattered Cloak" seems to me a comparatively unsuccessful offering -- a rambling tale that tries to cover too great a range both in time and in space and ends up demonstrating Nina Berberova's weakness, which is a failure to come to grips with fictional structure.

    There is something un-credible about the human ability to manufacture its own pain and suffering so relentlessly.

She also wrote the first book length biography of composer Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky inwhich was controversial for its openness about his homosexuality.

Stewart Mandel takes a provocative, hard-hitting look at the hot-button issues: the controversial BCS; the polls and their largely arbitrary rankings; the ego-inflating recruiting craze; cheating and recent scandals; the huge pressures and salaries heaped on coaches; the Heisman hype-fest; the NFL draft; the clunky conference expansions; privileged Notre Dame, college football's greatest juggernaut; and the proliferation of bowl games.
