Re: Day of the Locust
- This selection is only representative of the
author's work and perhaps is not even his best. However,
if you are not privy to the ambiance of early Los
Angeles you can miss some of the power of the prose
images. Locust is both a dark metaphor and a scathing
history and despite the obvious drawbacks of a
re-creation, I recommend viewing the 1975 movie to get the
picture in your mind (guess who Donald Sutherland plays).
The film is raw and frightening; not to be
missed.<br><br>Mike<br><a href=http://homepage.mac.com/mparker_46/ACOR target=new>http://homepage.mac.com/mparker_46/ACOR</a>
There's a long list of links that appears at the left of the screen
starting with "Home" and continuing until it gets down to "Calendar"
which is the second to last entry in the list.
I'm new here too but as I understand it there is an entry for the
Alexandria Quartet in March (and no entry so far for April) because
the group is going to be reading all four books of the series which
will take a while.
