My Dinner With Andre: Criterion Collection (Full Screen)
My Dinner With Andre: Criterion Collection (Full Screen)

JANKEOUGH, July 5, 2009

Finally a DVD version of this quirky, soulful film. I'd seen this years before and hoped for a DVD set that would do it justice. Or just give me the best viewing of two men and their long chat over dinner. Eavesdropping was never so much fun or rewarding!

The great railway bazaar :by train through Asia by Paul Theroux

JANKEOUGH, May 13, 2007

This book is a what a travel journal should be; alive with the moment's surprise encounters. When you finally arrive with Theroux in his Beijing hotel room, unheated in winter, you gladly reach for your hot cup of tea. An endurance test of a trip delivered to the reader's mind with perceptive wit and clear-headed cultural appreciation.

Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow
Alexander Hamilton

JANKEOUGH, May 6, 2007

I've been reading many biographies of those involved in creating the US. Chernow's Alexander Hamilton is the best and certainly most compelling. Apart from the overall excellence of the presentation, I was astonished at Hamilton's drive, intellect and accomplishments. There should be a physical monument to this dedicated servant of the Revolutionary cause. And this is not igonoring his enormous and elitist ego and moral failings at all. I suppose this input is late considering the book has been out a few years but, truly, it is well-worth the time and page-turning to read!
