    • The little bits in the middle (his letters to Java, a couple rare essays) make this collection worthwhile to flip through, or get from a library, but you are still much better off just buying any novel or play by him. A good book to see what he's about.


    • The compilation of his notes on cinema are pretty solid. And the Memoir segment I really enjoyed; the prose just rolls easily from one recollection to the next. Genet, you're so dreamy.




    • Very good selected. Includes fiction, poetry, plays, essays, memoirs, letters. My favorite is "The Thief's Journal."


    • This took me nearly three months to read (interspersed with other books), and I skipped the plays because I had already read them.
