More Special Summer Reading Treats
From Hazan/Yale University Press
comes “Kertesz” by Michel Frizot and Annie- Laurie Wanaverbecq ($75.00,
359 over-sized pages with many photographs). This incredible (and
collectible) book is a massive inventory of the works of Andre Kertesz
who worked amazingly at his craft for 70 years and still deemed himself
a perpetual “amateur.” We should be such an amateur. encyclopedia,
insightful, spanning so many approaches and time periods. VERY NOTABLE
“Hidden Alaska” with text by Dave Atcheson and
photography by Michael Melford (National Geographic, $24.00, 155 pages)
is a feast for the eyes and a world of data for the brain. More than 80
panoramic images merge with sprightly text to focus on the Alaska
unknown to many - - from Bristol Bay and Beyond as the sub-title
For those interested in a twist and turn and sexy
summer reading experience there is “The Swinger” by Michael Bamberger
and Alan Shipnuck (Simon & Schuster, $25.00, 254 pages). Herbert X.
“Tree” Tremont, the main character, is a guy you will not soon forget.
The authors truly know how to turn a phrase and tell a good story. For
all kinds of readers interested in a good read.
