  • The Spirit of Harlem on Dec. 03, 2011

    Felicity Savage is an intelligent writer. That was my first thought on reading The Spirit of Harlem. But then I realized that Ms. Savage didn't just tell an intelligent story. She had drawn all my emotions into the story, and I was there, not just watching events unfold, but participating silently like Patrick Swayze in Ghost. The characters couldn't hear me of course, but they didn't need to since Ms. Savage has excellent control of language, letting us know that language is so very important in the success of relationships. I wanted to shout across the dinner table, "Why don't you talk about the real problem?" But I just had to smile because Ms. Savage had already done that with this excellent story.
