Mean and Not For Everyone
Been traveling for work so needed some reading material when wired at 2am in hotels. Thanks for the Winslow books, read the Force and it had a lot of The Shield in it but I enjoyed it. Just cracked Power of the Dog and enjoying it thus far. I enjoyed the film adaptation of Savages fwiw. Mostly solid cast.
about 1/3 of the way through the Jann Wenner biography and totally understand why he’s pissed. I’ve never read an authorized biography, with this kind of access, that shits on it’s subject so much (though seemingly deserved) 😆
Finishing up that book is what kept me from starting The Power of the Dog (which is already great 100 pages in).
Love how sycophantic Wenner is for Jagger and Lennon, and how much they shit all over him.
Speaking of Wenner I got bored with him like half an hour into that HBO documentary.
Total hagiography. The book isn’t that.
On a general note, if anyone is interested in the Maura Murray disappearance, “True Crime Addict” is interesting. It’s written by a journalist who follows true crime stories and picks up the Murray case years later after being fired from his job in Ohio. A quick read, interspersed with some of his personal story. It is creepy in places. Don’t know quite what to think about it.
Come back, Regular Brian.
My agenda is truth.
I saw Don Winslow retweet this review of his book, so I figured I’d check it out.
This woman seems…simple. 😆 I wonder if Winslow actually read the review.
