    Legendary Mexico
    It seems as if all the trashy old paperback novels end up here, abandoned in cafes and hotels by vacationers whose tans have long since faded. Waves pound Los Muertos beach. At bars on the Malecón, Puerto Vallarta's beloved oceanfront promenade, lost...
  • 'Lord' films run rings around rest because of words

    Movies have their own special magic, of course, but it helps a lot to have a great book and great words behind them. A supreme recent case in point: the visually spectacular and absolutely mesmerizing "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers," a state-of-...
  • NO SEX, PLEASE, WE'RE FARMERS

    Consider it the constant reader's equivalent of the Thomas Guide. Just as few could wade through those hundred pages of ice cream-colored maps and emerge functionally L.A. literate, no one will be able to read "Writing Los Angeles: A Literary Anthology"...
  • "United States: Essays, 1952-1992" by Gore Vidal

    Gore Vidal the novelist's best character is Gore Vidal the essayist. Beside him even Myra Breckenridge seems a pale creation, and this great fat book, chronicling 40 years of the essayist's adventures, is like a lively picaresque novel in reverse. Its...
  • Gore Vidal's Novel 'Hollywood' Is Just Out, but the Great Curmudgeon Is Not Celebrating

    IT IS DECEMBER, AND THE AIR is a wash of silky light, astringently cool, but sunny enough to allow one to bathe in multiple sensations of warmth. Under white canvas umbrellas in outdoor cafes the beautiful ladies of Rome in their beautiful furs cross...
