'Print the Legend' gives the curious reader a bird's-eye view of the man who helped shape the world of cinema and the way we perceive the history of his beloved United States.


A Place Called Vatmaar by A. H. M. Scholtz

...is a positive, moving, real account of the complex and streetwise creature that constitutes the mavericks in South African society: the people who are given untenable circumstances but who use them wisely and creatively in constructing a life.

'Punktown' not only explores humanity's inability to interact healthily with their fellow inhabitants in the city of Paxton, but also itself.

'Out of the Past' has a pasted-together feel one might expect from a website entitled 'Noir Films I've Seen'. The book fails to deliver a big picture and doesn't do a very good job at delivering a lot of little pictures either.


One Thousand Beards:  A Cultural History of Facial Hair by Allan Peterkin

Popular culture hasn't had so wide a reach since the invention of the telegraph when cranky mothers could finally harass their children from across the world.
