Elia Kazan - The Improvisation of our Lives

I've finished the critical biography of Elia Kazan by Richard Schickel - well worth reading if you are a fan of films, or interested in the whole movement of theater, film, and acting that sprang from Stanislavski's teachings and the work of the Group Theater in the 1930s. Well-reasoned, fair, richly contextualized historically and artistically, and paced with a driving energy. Here's my whole review.

I've begun reading my first Saramago book All the Names more on that in two weeks, after vacation (July 9).
