Paul Russell is one of my favorite writers, but 'Boys of Life' captures not only the pangs of a small town boy's gradual entry into fabulously corrupt life, but film, the balance of desire and exploitation, the murky demi-monde of art film celebrity, and the horrible truths of immortality and youth, and how filmmakers try vainly to capture it. I've read it three times, bought three copies (two for gifts). I love how it fictionalizes elements of Warhol & Pasolini's careers, told by a friendly, likable narrator.Was this review helpful?
