SIDELIGHTS:

Judith Marks-White is a journalist and freelance writer, as well as an educator. Her column, "The Light Touch," appears weekly in the Westport News. Her first novel, Seducing Harry: An Epicurean Affair, is a light, romantic book that follows Coco Plotnick Hollander Harding, a wealthy woman over forty whose second husband, though nice enough in other ways, is a disappointing lover. Then she meets Harry Troutman, a married plastic surgeon who loves food and wine, and the two start an affair based on their shared passions. Diane White, in a review for the Boston Globe Online, wrote: "Marks-White describes both sex and food with great gusto, in lip-smacking detail. She writes more convincingly about the sex than the food, where she sometimes seems on unsteady ground." Jen Krieger, writing for Bookreporter.com, remarked: "Fully engaging from the very first line, Coco keeps her head held high as she navigates the choppy waters of secrets revealed and scandals uncovered. Readers will never doubt for a second, though, that she will not emerge unscathed." A contributor for Bella Online opined that "from the very first word all of my senses were on full alert…. Judith Marks-White is very adept at the art of description. With effortless panache, she seduces the reader in a world where every detail is important."

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
