Erich von Stroheim

Erich von Stroheim

I‘ve read a lot of other things this year as well.  There are too many to list here.  Some were books related to music including blues and jazz.  There were other books related to Nancy Cunard and Erich von Stroheim.  I read several books on Orson Welles.  I’m in the middle of work by Rabelais.  I’m always looking at Surrealism.  I read poetry at random including work by Kenneth Patchen, Lorca,  John Keats and Bob Kaufman.  Then the comics including work by Walt Kelly, Virgil Partch, Milt Gross, Charles Addams and more.  There’s no end to books!
