Rome by Robert Hughes
Rate this book
Clear rating
This appears to be Hughes' last book, and my guess is that he was pretty sick by the time the final stages of production were happening. It's poorly edited, with some bits repeating, several times in some instances.

A Way of Life, Like Any Other by Darcy O'Brien
Rate this book
Clear rating
Wow. 150 pages of dynamite. I indulged a long-held desire last year and ordered a

Krazy by Michael Tisserand
Rate this book
Clear rating
George Herriman's Krazy Kat is one of the supreme
American cultural achievements of the first half of the 20th
century. If you've never immersed yourself in it, you probably have
no idea what I mean, but the enigma of its art and story line kept
