Perhaps "Benedict Arnold" would have been a better choice.

Cindy Sheehan's autobio already has the copyright reserved for that one. wink

Just finished Harlan Ellison's "Strange Wine" on a rare mid-week day off. Looking forward to next month's vacation and plan to finally get through "Tales of H.P. Lovecraft" (selected & edited by Joyce Carol Oates) as well as a couple of books suggested by Eric about the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Glad you found time for those Dodger books, Pete!

The End of Faith - Sam Harris

A little too easy on eastern mysticism. Pretty good on Islam and the Spanish Inquisition so far.

Rereading again "Pontius Pilate" by Paul Maier, the best Biblical novel ever written IMO.

And Lee Strobel's "The Case For Faith" is always worth going back to for another look.

I plan on reading Jurassic Park again. I haven'y read it since 1993, and I really enjoyed it.

Narcissus and Goldmund by Hermann Hesse

Just started it.

Page After Page by Heather Sellers

Just finished it. Possibly the best book about writing I've read.

Edward Hopper: The Art and the Artist. by Gail Levin

I liked reading that Hopper thought the critics went overboard pointing out the "loneliness" theme in his work.

After Delores by Sarah Schulman

Fun noir-ish novel about a woman dealing with a murder mystery after being thrown over by her girlfriend.

Subterranean Gallery by Richard Paul Russo

Liberal victim fantasy of a future where art is outlawed, or something, while ponytailed "rebel" artists whine about it.

Just finished re-reading CULT TV: THE GOLDEN AGE OF ITC. Fine book with much behind-the scenes stories, but the author and many of the Brit actors obviously despise American actors (Barbara Bain, Steve Forrest, Gene Barry) who appeared on those ITC "programmes". With the esception of The Saint, ITC shows rarely lasted two years. Lew Grade gets all kinds of accolades, except for the fact that he screwed his actors out of royalties.

Currently reading:

The Speacher┬┤s Credibilty: Technical and Cultural Conditions for Political Rhetorics (2002) by Anders Johansen. Sounds like quite the nail-biting suspense thriller, eh?

The Fool's Progress by Edward Abbey

I think Abbey was dying when he wrote this. It doesn't show.

"The First Wave," by James R. Benn.

Just finished "Al Bowlly," a biography of the popular singer of the 1930s, by Sid Colin and Tony Staveacre.

Just finished Tennessee Williams' Collected Stories. They don't all work, but most of them do and when they do, oh brother! He really was brilliant; some of these stories took my breath away. And he was a triple threat - dramatist, prose writer, and poet.

I have a book of his poetry around here somewhere. I'll have to dig it out and see what his verse is like.

I finally finished Larry McMurtry's 'COMMANCHE MOON' which I started in The Spring while still living in New York! Am currently reading his last volume in his 'Lonsome Dove series', 'THE STREETS OF LAREDO', as well as 'AMERICAN VERTIGO' by Bernard-Henri Levy (a journey across America by a French Philosopher and Journalist)
