Books galore

The National Library here in Singapore is allowing people to borrow 8 books instead of the usual 4 for the holiday season - so I'm knee deep in reading. Currently going through New Yorker critic Anthony Lane's collection of film and other essays Nobody's Perfect, which has some interesting thoughts on Buster Keaton as the all-American vs what he sees as Chaplin's English obsession with class... I don't know, though, I don't think I would ever prefer Keaton to Chaplin, but maybe that's just me.
