I want to get deeper into David Goodis and Harry Crews, but I'm not reading that much lately... I also occasionally return to Men Women and Chainsaws by Carol J. Clover and Hollywood from Vietnam to Reagan by Robin Wood - my most-read books of film criticism. Oh, and Barry Gifford's The Devil Thumbs a Ride is always enjoyable, as are Chris D's writings on yakuza movies... oh and Stephen Thrower on horror movies...
