As the editor in charge of horoscopes he is getting even with Tanya by threatening her with each Virgo prediction. He is writing things like “One star: watch your back” and “One star: hope your new boyfriend doesn’t mind your bad breath.” The knife twist that makes “Virgo” so distinctively Mr. Walter’s is that when the horoscope writer is finally busted for troublemaking, he feels a sense of relief. Life wasn’t going to get better for him on its own.
Coincidence alert: One of the two detectives assigned to the Tanner girls’ case — Dr. Abigail Winter, a forensic psychologist with the F.B.I. — had a mistreated sister and a narcissistic mother, too. So she is well prepared to empathize with Cass as she investigates her disappearance, but that’s only half of Abby’s job. She and her male, safely married partner — just about the only nongoatish guy in the book — also have to figure out what became of Emma, who went missing and was never seen again.
Ron Rash’s new short story collection, “Nothing Gold Can Stay,” is this Appalachian author’s best book since his 2008 “Serena.” If “Serena” becomes famous as the basis for a coming Jennifer Lawrence-Bradley Cooper movie, never forget that it began as a fierce, breathtaking book, one of the greatest American novels in recent memory. “Serena,” set during the Depression, is a period piece, the kind of fiction for which Mr. Rash is best known.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
