Memo to Patrick Anderson 

Your weekly column in the Washington Post is designed to review thrillers and mysteries. You have given some excellent reviews to the likes of David Corbett, Michael Gruber , and so-so reviews for many other writers. So why is it that for the second week in a row, you are reviewing literary novels? I don't doubt that Ann-Marie MacDonald's latest book is very good and that I should "not miss it." However, by reviewing a book that is getting so much airplay elsewhere, you take away the opportunity for other fine books that are otherwise ignored to have their moment in the sun. I trust that this will be rectified next week. Otherwise I may not be such a happy camper.
