Alan Lomax by John Szwed
Rate this book
Clear rating
3 1/2 star book. Well-written and well-researched, but it really felt like the last 3/4s or so were skimpy on a lot of Lomax's work/life details - as if Szwed was in a hurry to get done or something. Worth reading.
Derek and 1 other person liked Wes's review of The Savage Detectives:
The Savage Detectives by Roberto Bolaño
"Phenomenal. In the two weeks it took me to read this my thoughts rarely strayed from it. Easily one of the most electrifying, mesmerizing, intensely creative novels I've ever read."
