Great Books Club

These are books by living authors (excepting the first classic) whose articles or theses I often cite in my blogposts and build upon even if I do not cite them. I have read only passages of some of these books and do not own a copy of any (Xmas gift list, in other words). I also include a couple documentaries by auteurs I admire but who have not published books.

I list but one book per author; you can follow up with their other works. Also, I link to interviews too, since I came across much of this “listening”. For the moment I link the books to Amazon. If you want to purchase, it would help many authors to seek out their website. I’ll slowly put those in here as well.
