What I've Been Reading
I just got a call from the bookstore telling that they recieved my copy of John Gorenfeld's new book Bad Moon Rising: How Reverend Moon Created the Washington Times, Seduced the Religious Right and Built an American Kingdom. I look forward to reading it.
I have recently read two very good books:
The first book is Jacob Weisberg's new book The Bush Tragedy. A couple weeks ago, I attended a book party for the book at Arianna's house (no, I didn't crash the party; I was invited). I got a chance to chat with Weisberg for a couple minutes. When I finally got the chance to read the book, I was shocked. I always knew the Bush clan was dysfunctional but they are giving the Moons a run for their money. George W. Bush will go down in history as America's worst president; if you want to know why, read Weisberg's book.
I was saddened when Will Eisner died a couple years ago. His last major work was The Plot: The Secret Story of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. In graphic detail, The Plot tells the story of the creation of one of the biggest literary hoaxes in human history, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. As in Eisner's other works, The Plot show that Eisner is a master of both form and content, giving life to a subject that is not particularly amenable to sequential art.
