The Friedkin Connection

A good book to read if your fans of The French Connection, The Exorcist.
You get some good insights about those movies.
The beginning is boring and it's not until Friedkin starts The French Connection that the book gets good.

Reviews seem to be somewhat mixed. Heard the prose isn't the best, but several parts are quite interesting. I'll probably read it at some point.

Not worth buying, but worth reading at your local library.

This is next on my read list, a friend of mine works at BAM, where they did a Friedkin series a few weeks ago. She sent me a signed copy with a nice little inscription.

I'm reading this now. Borrowed it from the library. He was just at Dark Delicacies last weekend signing copies of it. Too bad I couldn't make it.
