The August 2018 issue of film magazine SIGHT & SOUND came through my letterbox recently:

I don't think I've read many novels about cinema. In fact, I don't think I've read any.
The list is fascinating. THE FACE ON THE CUTTING-ROOM FLOOR (1937) by Cameron McCabe and FLICKER (1991) by Theodore Roszak sound like intriguing films. If they are in print, I will have a look for them.
INFINITE JEST (1996) by David Foster Wallace is another one that sounds intriguing.
SIGHT & SOUND is more of an esoteric film magazine. It does review all new films that month, but shys away from mainstream coverage, instead focusing on more obscure films. I can certainly recommend picking up the latest issue. I am going to look for many of the books on the list.
So, has anyone read the ones I mentioned above? Or maybe you have read other novels about cinema. Any general thoughts on novels about cinema and the film industry?
