Book Beast Is Out of Its Cage

I'm a fan of Tina Brown's new online news thing "The Daily Beast." As befits a Web site that takes its name from literature, (as does Starbucks...) Ms. Brown has launched a new supplement dedicated to all things literary: The Book Beast.

The first posts include a piece by Lee Siegel on the me-too critics lauding Updike only now that he's dead, an excerpt of Bryan Burrough's engrossing (my critique) new book about the Texas oil dynasties, and a look at the new Norman Mailer Writer's Retreat in Provincetown.
