Re­view the book

The Saturday Paper - - Letters & Editorial -

I found your re­view of One Good Turn by Mary Le­u­nig to be nar­row-minded and of­fen­sive (Books, Oc­to­ber 27– Novem­ber 2). Even if she is “men­tally ill”, are you say­ing that the men­tally ill have no right to ex­press them­selves? And how about re­view­ing the work it­self, on its mer­its, in­stead of mak­ing guesses about an au­thor’s men­tal state or mo­ti­va­tions? We could all guess un­til the cows come home.

– Amy Choi, Lance­field, Vic
