         Norman Kagan - The Cinema of STANLEY KUBRICK

Stanley Kubrick was one of our most brilliant, innovative and difficult filmmakers. Norman Kagan's analysis cuts a lucid path through those difficulties. He summarizes the plots of each of Kubrick's films, providing a running commentary as he goes along. He moreover lists thematic obsessions that run through all the films he describes, offering an intriguing sense of Kubrick's career as a whole. (Film Editor's Recommended Book)

             joe klein Joe Klein - The Running Mate

Klein is one the best political journalist around, and an immensely gifted novelist. The Running Mate has lively characters, well-constructed scenes, better than serviceable prose and, of course, impressive verisimilitude. It is a hugely entertaining book, very wise, and very sobering. As one politico says, "It's a big game hunt, and we're the game.... The jungle'll be left to pygmies and hyenas."

  Stephen King - Bag of Bones

  Donald E. Westlake - Kahawa Kahawa
(An African novel)

Donald E. Westlake's novels have ranged from sly comedies -- like Baby, Would I Lie? -- to the uniquely uproarious Dortmunder series. But in Kahawa, a lost Westlake gem now brought back to print, the Mystery Writers of America Grand Master and multiple Edgar Award winner spins one of his most extraordinary yarns. Hailed as "a splendid huggermugger" by the New York Times and a "gigantic caper for all seasons" by Robert Ludlum, Kahawa is a heady brew of politics, sex, power, and of course, larceny. Big-time larceny in the backwaters of Africa.
   Lynn Kurland - The More I See You The More I See You

Lynn Kurland's latest delightful and humorous time travel romance.
On a trip to England, Jessica Blakely from Manhattan walks in an estate garden and wishes on a star for a "fair and gallant knight... a man to love me at least as much as he loves himself."  Within moments fog rolls in, and when it lifts the garden is gone and she's swept up by an armored knight...

Best books of the 20th Century

                                Milan Kundera - The Book of Laugh and Forgetting

In one of the finer modern ironies of the life-imitates-art sort, the country that Kundera seemed to be writing about when he talked about Czechoslovakia is, thanks to the latest political redefinitions, no longer precisely there. This kind of disappearance and reappearance is, partly, what Kundera explores in The Book of Laughter and Forgetting. In this polymorphous work -- now a novel, now autobiography, now a philosophical treatise -- Kundera discusses life, music, sex and literature.

                                Jamaica Kincaid - Annie John

Jamaica Kincaid beautifully delineates hatred and fear, because she knows they are often a step away from love and obsession. At the start of Annie John, her 10-year-old heroine is engulfed in family happiness and safety. Though Annie loves her father, she is all eyes for her mother. When she is almost 12, however, the idyll ends and she falls into deep disfavor. This inexplicable loss mars both lives, as each grows adept at public falsity and silent betrayal.

                               Rudyard Kipling - Kim

"Though he was burned black as any native; though he spoke the vernacular by preference..."

One of the particular pleasures of reading Kim is the full range of emotion, knowledge, and experience that Rudyard Kipling gives his complex hero. Kim O'Hara, the orphaned son of an Irish soldier stationed in India, is neither innocent nor victimized. Raised by an opium-addicted half-caste woman since his equally dissolute father's death, the boy has grown up in the streets of Lahore.
