You Can Say That Again

"I think we have a huge problem of everything being governed by success and money. I think it's appalling. Newspapers list the 10 bestselling movies of the week, as opposed to the 10 best. The fantasy is to make the most money, even if it's Porky's 7. I think it's a bad time."

- From a long and interesting interview with Michael Ondaatje, on the occasion of the publication of his new book, Divisadero


  • What do you think of Ondaatje? I thought The English Patient was brilliant, but have been very disappointed by his other books.

  • Well, of the three that I've read, I liked 'Running in the Family' and 'The English Patient', but 'Anil's Ghost' left me...bemused.
