Things are hopping here at Chez K. The weekend was so busy we didn’t have time to get a new Two Please up. So go read the old ones and leave laughs and pithy comments. In the meantime, I can tell you that in recent days I have enjoyed The Betrayers, a no-nonsense cop novel by new-to-me author James Patrick Hunt, and Burn After Reading. Then again, I will eagerly take any trip to Planet Coen.
Here’s a pair of links courtesy of Arts & Letters Daily. The author of How to Cheat at Everything confirms what I have long suspected: I have the heart if not the nerves of a con man. And an appreciation of the continuing power of black-and-white film across the genres.
