Heaven's My Destination is firmly placed in 's America, and in a modern, humorous way it spins the yarn of traveling salesman and self-professed evangelist, George Brush.
After reading Less Than Zero I was disturbed to say the least. They find that, despite many cultural similarities between the two countries, Canada has three times the rate of intergenerational mobility as the United States—possibly because Canada makes more public investments in its labor market, health care, and family programs.
Life has to be lived with love, with people you care about. The domestic consequences of our crusades. Flame away if you want, but I'll keep Godless on the list. This same attribute of the village character was later depicted by writers Edgar Lee Masters and Sherwood Anderson.
The deposed heir, Valerius, is plotting with the King of neighboring Nemedia, with a powerful Baron, and with a sorcerer to use a jewel called the Heart of Ahriman to raise to life a years dead mummy named Xaltotun, who was a powerful high priest in the evil kingdom of Acheron.
Blumenthal is so busy burning strawmen that he misses the point of the movie and even misreports the ending, which he must not have seen. Though hope springs eternal. I am sneaking this list of my favorite books of into November, simply so that I can have an uninterrupted archive list on my blog for every month of every year.

What a delightful surprise awaited me. One of the best things about The New Testament and Literature is that it led me to discover the novels of Thornton Wilder and Harold Frederic, both of whom are coming on this list.
Harold Frederic—and Edmund Wilson and pretty much any writer on American subjects who is worth a damn—does not fit the liberal-conservative straitjacket.
Those who dwell in the village are usually of a certain type appropriate to such a society, and in many literary presentations the village is inhabited not by the simple but by the simpleminded and not by the satisfied but by the self-satisfied.
