Gene Wilder has been a beloved actor in movies I've been exposed to in childhood and later. To hear him speak with candor about his weakness for Gilda, his joys working with Mel Brooks, and his discernment of where his true talent lies was a joy.
If you buy this, don't buy the other one with the same picture: the only difference is a minor detail and the presenting intro.
Salman makes a blend of sensuality, inner and outer turmoil, and lives lived parallel to fanaticism. Powerful!
I'd be happy to see this become an audio book.
Christopher Hitchens makes a big confession. Salman gets giddy with the 'failed novel title' game. Each shares limericks. An important oppinion is left if militant Iran gets a nuclear weapon. And a little on a god argument that stands at the forefront of such arguments, yet leaves the Hitch unsatisfied.
Worth at least three times the purchase price.
