Being There (Black Swan)
Being There (Black Swan)
by Jerzy Kosinski
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.59

3.0 out of 5 stars For a change, the film is better, 5 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unfortunately, the writer didn't seem to take his time finishing and polishing his story, which is full of potential and very interesting in places. Fortunately, Kosinski wrote the screenplay, elaborating on ideas that were only nascent in the book. Worth a read, but the film (starring Peter Sellers!) is much better and more complete.


Modern Baptists (Penguin Modern Classics)
Modern Baptists (Penguin Modern Classics)
by James Wilcox
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Have read this several times over the years..., 5 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Every time I read this novel I find some beautiful new nuance, another unexpected and surprising insight into the heart. Modern Baptists manages the rare feat of being very funny and deeply moving at the same time. It is so subtle in its gift to the reader, an honest and rare thing to return to whenever you're feeling the world is a little too dark.
