THE CITIZEN KANE BOOK by Pauline Kael
Released: Oct. 28, 1971

"Miss Kael's piece is, expectably, spankingly entertaining as well as informative and the dual project will have its new-old appeal."
The only name that doesn't belong above is that of Orson Welles', for if Citizen Kane was not only his greatest movie but is still as fresh as the day that it opened, he had nothing to do with "The Shooting Script" which, along with takes from it, and notes by Gary Carey, constitute three quarters of this book.

BOOK REVIEW

EIRELAN by Liam O’Shiel
Released: Nov. 10, 2011

"While the central conceit of the novel (a future where Irish clans speak the Celtic language, abandon Christianity and successfully fight with swords instead of modern weapons) is far-fetched, O'Shiel delivers a rich, engaging epic."
A futuristic tale in which the people of Ireland wage war as if it were the Middle Ages. Read full book review >
