late to the Dow Mossman party

Watched Stone Reader last night and reserved Dow Mossman's reissued novel, The Stones of Summer, from the library this morning. Am looking for comments from people who've read the book.


  1. I haven't read the book (I'm a little bit afraid to, actually. Afraid that it will not live up to expectations--but then I wonder if that isn't sort of the point of the whole movie--the subjectivity of taste) but, boy, did I LOVE this movie.

  2. I also loved the movie, but it's more about the filmmaker, really, than it was about either Mossman or his book. I have it, but I'm hesitant to take it on. I understand he's working on a new book?

  3. I haven't read it, but I guess I need to now.
