Packed and Loaded: Conversations with James M. Cain
Insightful interviews from James M Cain that shed some light onto the man behind Postman and other seminal classics. I liked the layout of the ebook, and the way Cain would go off on what seemed to be tangential but it all relates to the original question. What sticks out the most about this small volume is how we get to see the man, and his personality, through a few long answers to some questions. Highly enjoyable and I wish it were at least three times as long. I would love to actually hear t Insightful interviews from James M Cain that shed some light onto the man behind Postman and other seminal classics.
I would love to actually hear the audio to these interviews. The best thing I learned from this book is that my all time favorite book is also James M. Cain's alltime favorite book. That book is Alice in Wonderland!
