Happy--no, Sad face. My copy of Nick Davis's book "The Desiring Image: Gilles Deleuze and Contemporary Queer Cinema" arrived. YES. But it arrived like so, rolled up like a damn newspaper! NO.
I've tried to straighten the gorgeous gay out but it's not budging. Permanently bent!
[one hour later] Oops... I started reading instead of finishing this post which I should not have done since I have to return this copy! I'm so into the launching Cronenberg chapter and am digging the provocative argument that he...no I can't. Must. Return. Get. New. Copy.
I can't even bear to take a photo of the mangled cover so you should remind yourself of how beautiful it is here. And if you haven't ordered it yet, do it now. Nick is a great writer, provocative thinker, and unshakeable cinephile and since it's gay pride month, it's a great time to start digging in. You'll probably even have your beautiful unmangled copy before I get this one replaced by Amazon!
