Book reviews: Notes from Neil

Two Kinds of Drama, with a Physics Chaser

by Neil Rajala

The full moon of the night before was one of the brightest I've seen and, per my experiment on my back deck, was bright enough to read by. A celestial booklight, so to speak. Here's what we're reading:

Sock of the new

Young soloist, new music spice up Lansing Symphony

by Lawrence Cosentino
A young piano soloist and a baby-fresh piece of music (by classical standards, at least) promise to liven up Saturday’s Lansing Symphony slate. But Maestro Timothy Muffitt is not rolling the dice. Neither are unproven quantities. In fall 2012, Muffitt brought Colton Peltier (pronounced “pell-tee-air”) in to solo with the Baton Rouge Symphony, which Muffitt also leads. Audience feedback was so positive that Peltier came back a year later to open the 2013-‘14 season.

by Bill Castanier
Patricia Schultz’s first memory of travel was with her family to the Jersey Shore when she was 4. “It was very exotic for me,” said the author of “1,000 Places to See Before You Die,” recalling the sand, surf and sun. “If it was August, we were packing the car for Jersey.” But it was what she calls her “first passport experience,” a trip to the Dominican Republic at 15, that changed her life.

WHY WE CHOSE A RISKY ALTERNATIVE CHILDBIRTH FOR OUR SON

by ALLAN I. ROSS
My son, Sagan, is set to be either a well-adjusted world citizen or a case study in identity crisis. He is a blend of European and Afro-Caribbean ethnicities, has dual U.S./French citizenship and, if his development goes well, will be bilingual from the time he can speak. My wife, Gaëlle, is a research scientist; I am an arts and culture writer, so between the two of us he’s getting a solid dose of left brain/right brain mechanics. At 8 weeks old, Sagan already shatters any notions of cultural pigeonholing … but that could just be a proud father talking.
