AUTHOR

Bernstein, Nina

SUMMARY

"Bernstein is a terrific, dogged reporter....At times, the profusion of detail lifts Bernstein's writing to a kind of poetry....At times, however, the book's narrative falters amid pointless facts about the lawsuit and its muddy resolution, and clumsy descriptions of its champions....Bernstein should be saluted for tackling a complex and controversial topic, and for shedding additional light on the history of filth and brutality that riddles our child-welfare system. But in the end, THE LOST CHILDREN OF WILDER lacks the literary grace, historical sweep and unflinching personal honesty that would make it an epic. Like the system it seeks to depict, the book can best be called a noble failure."Bernstein, Nina is the author of 'Lost Children of Wilder The Epic Struggle to Change Foster Care', published 2002 under ISBN 9780679758341 and ISBN 0679758348.
