4.0 out of 5 stars Witty, clever, intelligent musings by a cultural icon, 26 Feb. 2007
Whatever you think of Andy Warhol, 20 years after his death and 3+ decades after this little book was written, he remains an inescapable figure in the arts scene. This witty book is difficult not to like, full of clever musings about life and art. You'll want to keep turning back to it and pass it on to friends to enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, palm-sweating novel of war, 26 Feb. 2007
If you've never read James Salter before and always liked the spare style of Hemingway but longed for an heir with a more modern sensibility Salter is the writer for you. This brilliant, page-turning book puts you in the cock-pit like no other. First published in 1956 and reissued this year alongside 4 other titles, you'll be hard pressed to read a better novel this year - unless you follow it up by reading his Light Years from the 70s. Discover James Salter and encounter a clarity of prose and emotional depth you'll be hard-pressed to match.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unforgettable, moving, unputdownable read, 16 Jan. 2007
This short book is one you will read in a single setting and be passing on to friends afterward. Perhaps the best short novel set during the Second World War, its success is probably due to the combination of the author's own personal experience - transformed into fiction - and his ability to write so well. The novel is gripping and moving. Daniel Mendelsohn's The Lost features Begley's mother as a character if you're interested in reading more.
