Some books I've read 35
This is San Fransisco
This is Paris, all by M. Sasek
This is The World by M. Sasek
A collection of drawings from all his This Is books. Unfortunately, the reproduction is not that good, with bland colours, and the drawings not always being 100% sharp. I've seen some of the originals online, with stronger colour and looking much better. So that's a shame.
This is M. Sasek
Showing a lot of his drawings from the books, sometimes based on the originals, but also paintings he did and earlier books for children, plus biographical material.
Martian Time-Slip by Philip K. Dick
A bit uneven novel, about autism and schizophrenia, and linked to precognition, which can be debatable, I guess, but with an interesting choice towards the end where the story, following the subject of the book, is told out of order.
The Penultimate Truth by Philip K. Dick
Enjoyed this book a lot. It has a mystery that's actually quite intriguing.
Will You Take Me As I Am: Joni Mitchell's Blue Period by Michelle Mercer
The writer goes through Mitchell's records between Blue and Hejira, analysing the songs and putting her work into a historical frame, from St. Augustine to Dylan and Cohen.
