If, like me, you can't get enough of Terry Teachout's criticism in The Wall Street Journal, or on his blog (written with Laura Demanski) www.aboutlastnight.com, you might want to take a look at his weekly book review column for the Commentary blog, Contentions (Teachout's also the music critic for the journal, but you don't read that, do you?).
The Dud Avocado by Elaine Dundy, with Terry Teachout's eloquent introduction by will be available in June. Until then, you can see what he said about it in 1996, when he listed it as one of his favorite comedic novels. And his partner at About Last Night has also been a major advocate of the book.
