Review: Oliver Sacks Looks at His Life in ‘On the Move’ - NYTimes.com. Michiko Kakutani review.
FOREIGN GODS, INC. by Okey Ndibe / The book watches Ike, a Nigerian-born cabby in New York City, lose his jaded American carapace once he goes home and gets reacquainted with the culture from which he came. Mr. Ndibe writes with a keen, witty awareness of the collision of cultures at work within Ike after he decided that he could casually shed his past, his spiritual beliefs and everything he once held dear.

PENELOPE FITZGERALD: A Life by Hermione Lee / This is a strong and sensitive biography of a writer who led an extraordinary life. Ms. Fitzgerald attended Oxford University, later found herself and her children homeless and did not publish her first book until she was nearly 60. Here we have a perfect match of biographer and subject. (Photo: James Nieves/The New York Times)
