Giveaway! John Huston: Courage and Art
I am VERY excited to be able to give away a copy of John Huston: Courage and Art (2011) by Jeffrey Meyers.
This book looks utterly fascinating. I couldn't even help myself and started reading it -- and I couldn't put it down (unfortunately, I ended up having to put it down because I had to go to work. SHEESH.)
Raquelle over at Out of the Past has written an excellent review that should seriously make you want to read this even more!
A man of Huston's talent would always make an interesting story, but John Huston wasn't just a legendary film-maker. He was an adventurer, an explorer, basically an awesomely crazy person. He was the kind of person movies are made ABOUT.
The more one learns about John Huston, the more it seems like he created films just as another outlet for his intense and creative personality.
Anyway, this book looks AWESOME!
Thank you so much to Crown Archetype for sending it to me!
