With “Updike,” Begley “performed a kind of double alchemy,” the Boston Globe said in a review, “capturing the sublime magic by which Updike turned his own life into art and rendering the life with such depth and sympathy that when the reader closes the book, Updike lingers in the mind like a character from a novel.””Effortless,” “seductive” and “unputdownable” those are just a few of the words used to describe Sarah Waters’ novel “The Paying Guests,” set in London in 1922. The story centers on an upper class, 20 something young woman named Frances, who, along with her mother, is forced to take in boarders from the “clerk class” in order to maintain their stately home.

TURLEY: Well, in my view there is no plausible legal theory because there is existing legal precedent establishing that this is a war crime. That why Attorney General Mukasey refused to answer the question. Because he could not answer the question at his confirmation: waterboarding a crime, a war crime? Because he knew that the cases establish that it is.
