Fiedler Gets His Due
Our News review of the superb posthumous anthology of previously uncollected essays by Leslie Fiedler appeared on the News book pages Sunday March 16.
In truth, I jumped the gun a little, entirely by accident . The official publication of "The Devil Gets His Due" is, in fact, right about now.
A rather splendid review of the late UB professor's book appeared last Sunday, April 13 in the Los Angeles Times by novelist Bruce Bauman.
For those curious to read some of Fiedler's late-life social criticism whose absence from "The Devil Gets His Due" Bauman laments, find his mid-90's books published by David Godine: "Fiedler on the Roof" and "Tyranny of the Normal."
