The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night
When I first saw Robert Altman's Nashville, I didn't like it. I'd already read that it was a Great Movie -- Pauline Kael praised it to the skies -- and the film itself, well, it was just a film.
Now, it's one of my favorites. It just couldn't live up to the advance billing.
So many people said they liked this so much that I just had to read it. It's a fine little book.
