John Crowley's new novel Four Freedoms comes out in two days. I'll get it when it does. Looks promising.
Spent much of yesterday in parks, sunning myself and reading, until a droplet of rain struck my scalp late this afternoon.
Gaspar Noe's Enter the Void is pretty close to the top of the list of movies I want to see.
Surprising, exciting winners at Cannes. Haneke gets the Palme D'or! Park gets the Jury Prize! Christopher Waltz (who?) from Inglourious Basterds gets Best Actor. I want to see all these, too, very badly.
I'm reading a YA novel now called The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It's Battle Royale. But I do love the scenario of the schoolkids forced to play a game of death on TV, so it's entertaining. And although the writing is eh, the story seems well-built (so far) and it's pretty entertaining.
