Muito bem escrito, linguagem cativante. Mas os trocadilhos e o fluxo muito solto de idéias começam a te testas após metade do livro. Melhor recomendado para pessoas que entendem muito de cinema clássico não é o meu caso).

Ansioso para testar outros livros do autor.

Hysterical. Infante is in league with Peter Mayle and adept at revealing the little nuances that we all do (but rarely admit to). Holy Smoke is thoroughly enjoyable and a must-have for your personal reading shelf; you'll want to read it again!!!
Actually, this is not my book, but Joey's: he talks about it a lot these days; it's on his bedside table in PW. He found it at the Book Barn in Hillsdale. I am going to have to drift downstairs some time soon and look though it!
