Vacation With Manny

The flow of posts through Exploding Kinetoscope is mercifully thin and irregular during normal months. Adding to the October blockage, I am currently on vacation and far away from Movie City, U.S.A. So I will be spread thin-to-gone for another week.

I still feel compelled to remind readers that October 1 saw the first publication of The Library of America's Farber on Film: The Complete Film Writings of Manny Farber. Certainly this hardcover treasure-slab is the film book event of the year, and it is highly unlikely that even the most diehard Farber scholar or fan has tracked down all of the represented material before. It is suggested that you stop reading blogs until you are done reading Farber on Film. It will teach you how to write about movies like a real man!

Here I am being transfixed by the book in Lawrence, Kansas!
