A conversation with a friend
6 March 2009 | by oaksongSee all my reviews

It's really wonderful when you begin to feel that your sitting next to a new found friend in a bar sharing a beer and he's telling you his stories. That's pretty much what it's like to watch this film. Samuel Delaney has nothing to hide and does an excellent job of revealing himself.

Samuel Delaney is one of the more brilliant writers of the 20th century and has the awards to prove it. Beyond that he's wonderful to listen, probably one reason he's got tenure at Temple University.

Don't miss this wondrous explication of the history of post WWII America with a distinctly gay twist.
