Scientology og Tom

The New York Times anmelder en ny biografi om filmstjerne og scientolog, Tom Cruise. Forfatteren til »Tom Cruise: An Unauthorized Biography« Andrew Morton, går hårdt til Cruise.

Berlingske anmelder
en bog af Jonathan Wichmann om (Jørgen) »Leth og Kedsomheden«. Informations egen anmeldelse af bogen læses her.

På litteratursiden.dk kan man læse et interview med forfatteren Marianne Larsen, der lige nu er aktuel med den anmelderroste »Den forelskede unge«.

New Humanist tegner et portræt af den slovenske filosof Slavoj Žižek der af mange opfattes som den intellektuelle verdens enfant terrible.

Kommentarer

Andrew can't-get-any-lower Morton's on-the-record sources — grade-school ''friends,'' former neighbors, disgruntled ex-Scientologists — are many rings away from his chosen bull's-eye. The lack of fresh material is manifest in desperate stretching (Cruise went to high school in Glen Ridge, N.J., and a decade later, there was a rape case involving...Glen Ridge high schoolers!), family arcana (Cruise's grandfather's cousin's academic works fill 8.3 cubic feet in a library — noted!), and the uncategorizably bizarre (after reading that Church leader David Miscavige is ''two years older if two inches shorter'' than Cruise, I felt two seconds older if two IQ points dumber).

Ah, another know-nothing bio about Tom. Thanks to EW for saving me time and money.
