Last year, Stephen King titled a short story, “Herman Wouk Is Still Alive.” Well, it’s time for an update. Not only is Herman Wouk still alive, now age 97, he has just published a new novel, “The Lawgiver” (Simon & Schuster).

In “The Lawgiver,” Wouk takes inspiration from his pre-World War II career as a radio comedy writer for Fred Allen. (c) 2012 Liz
