"I just finished reading Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, watching Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and watching the other Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, a completely enjoyable experience, so this is my thing now. There's no kill like overkill. "
@DavidPoland @habesla1 Alternate idea: Read a GOOD book. Try The Witch Elm by Tana French, or The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead, or Wow, No Thank You by Samantha Irby, or Hidden Valley Road by Robert Kolker. All infinitely more worth your attention. You're welcome.
Movie lovers! If you've been involved in (or witness to) The Great Mank Debate, I recommend that you take a break and read this fantastic book by @MsMelissaMaerz. First of all, it is pure candy--but the kind of pure candy that can only come from prodigious research and planning.
I can't recommend @AJentleson's book Kill Switch highly enough if you want to understand what is happening in our Senate, therefore our government, therefore our country. It is an impassioned, frustrated but not hopeless diagnosis from an actual expert, not just an opinion-haver.
I'm reading George Saunders's A Swim in a Pond in the Rain, and feeling grateful that it's impossible to read quickly or carelessly. Recommended if you want a book that will slap you out of bad reading habits and teach you some beautiful things.
Yes! Kyle's book is packed with insight, and helped me to think about Nichols's movies in new ways.
If you have ever rooted for the Mets, agonized with the Mets, or suffered for the sins of the Mets, I highly recommend this rageful, funny, and cathartic book!
