Early on, she was consulted somewhat but when she raised objections, they told her that shooting had already begun. This is also Roberts pasticheing Burgess pasticheing Dos Passos — and it works. Afterward, as Richard Sherman recalled, she tracked down Disney at the after-party, which was held in a giant white tent in the parking lot adjoining the Chinese Theatre. Headlines, poems, ditties and catches all thread through the book, like half remembered things. A far cry from the Earthsea I envisioned.

Plus, sometimes you get to meet famous people. It's all fascinating and extremely well done and once you get used to the rhythm changing up it is a really excellent read. I want to say that I am very sorry for the actors. Those who sail in ships live, like this castellated English ship, made of wood as a coffin is made of wood. I thought it might be amusing blatantly to steal the Camera Eye and the Newsreel devices from Dos Passos just to see how they might work, especially with the Black Death and Crécy and the Spanish campaign.
