#bookandmovie Feels like National Treasure might be a good choice to pair with my next read
Today's #bookandmovie feature is the Showtime docu Prophet's Prey by Amy Berg. This haunting, harrowing look at a real life American Gilead will burrow into your brain. It's based on a book, and the author appears as a key figure. If you liked Under The Banner, this is almost like a sequel (and Krakauer is a major figure in both), but fair warning, this documentary is very triggering wrt abuse and religious cults. Recommended, but with warning.
I'm sure I have talked about this book before, but it came back to me as I watched the stunning new documentary Oklahoma City (available on Netflix). It's a tough sit (TWs abound), but a great primer into the history of white nationalism, and how easy it is for words to become violence. Zeskind appears in the docu, and his book is long, but essential reading for today's America (although it is 10 years out of date). #bookandmovie #sorry4thebummer
#FunFridayPhoto I caught Time After Time on cable a couple of weeks ago so it was top of mind for me when thinking about time travel books. I had this movie tie-in copy of the book and it and the film with Malcolm McDowell & Mary Steenburgen were favorites of mine. H.G. Wells & Jack the Ripper were a fun pairing with 1979 San Francisco. #timetravel #bookandmovie
