added to my wishlist -- I'll get it after the holiday season. Thanks for the review.

the book you write of
is perfect for me, and I
crave it for my own

... and need it, clearly! Sorry, Basho...

A great book, I agree. I had it on my shelf for years, but only read it last year. I gained so much from it, way more than mere technical advice. It somehow invites you to share the passion of reading or writing haiku, and in turn of experiencing the world in a slightly different way. And it's a great case of a book that's been around a while and not yet been surpassed.

One You May Have Missed

  • Ian Holding: Unfeeling

    Ian Holding: Unfeeling
    Unforgettable novel told from the point of view of the son of a white Zimbabwean farmer whose land is reclaimed by an armed mob. I thought it was an oustanding debut and am surprised the author didn't go on to bigger and better things.

Big Mouth at the Movies

  • : Guardians of the Galaxy

    Guardians of the Galaxy
    Good fun, I thought. Not the best film in the world but a cut above the usual superhero stuff. (****)

  • : The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya

    The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya
    Unlike any animation I have seen. Quite stunning. (****)

  • : The Killer Inside Me

    The Killer Inside Me
    Odd movie. Doesn't really work. (***)

  • : Gone Girl

    Gone Girl
    Pretty good, I thought, but not amazing. I had already read the book so perhaps the lack of surprise hindered things a bit. (***)

  • : The Lunchbox

    The Lunchbox
    An absolute delight. Beautifully acted. Loved this. (****)

  • : Atomised

    Atomised
    So much better than the book. (****)

  • : 20,000 Days on Earth

    20,000 Days on Earth
    Watched this for a second time. Just as good. (****)

  • : Le Mepris

    Le Mepris
    Brigitte Bardot, Jack Palance, Michel Piccoli and Fritz Lang star in a beautifully shot but terribly pretentious movie. Palance is awful throughout. (**)

  • : Labor Day

    Labor Day
    Was this a box office flop? I think it might have been. Shame, it was very good. (****)
