NOTE: The Minderbinder Review of Books employs several fat-checkers on staff. By submitting a one-sentence book review, all reviewers provide tacit consent for The Minderbinder Review of Books to copy edit, if necessary, no more than one word from their review before posting. The Minderbinder Review of Books may also consider it necessary to insert or remove a hyphen, change an en dash to an em dash (or vice versa) and/or change it back again. This policy strives to remain true to the core principles of The Minderbinder Review of Books and to honor the motto inspired by H.L. Mencken: "One too many words is one toke over the line."
