Waging Heavy Peace: A Hippie Dream - Neil Young

Neil Young lives in lucid revelry. On matters spiritual, musical, technological, psychotropical (of course), medical and literary he is eloquent if occasionally charmingly loopy. Whatever his passing fancy is, Young will devote whole chapters to it. Whether its his days in the Buffalo Springfield, Crazy Horse, relationships, caring for his sons with cerebral palsy, or cars, there’s a lot of cars. As opposed to sitting across from Keith Richards in a bar or listening to Pete Townshend wax poetically in a coffee shop Waging Heavy Peace reads like your peering over his shoulder while he types it up. For such a heavy rocker he’s absolutely delightful!

Red - John Logan

Abstract Expressionist Mark Rothko begins his most ambitious commission of his artistic career and hires a new assistant in order that they may devote themselves slavishly to his vision. Long before John Logan achieved fame as a screenwriter with "Gladiator" "Hugo", "Rango", "Coriolanus", the two latest James Bond films, and the TV show Penny Dreadful he made his name in the Chicago theater as a playwright and Red was his crowning achievement that made Hollywood come calling. Rothko was an artist who valued integrity, talent, and artistic truth above all else and Logan portrays him as equally admirable and loathsome. Ian, his at-first humble assistant, equally yearns to be Rothko and surpass him making Red an explosive piece, almost equally indelible on paper as it must have been on stage!
