Recent reads for August part 2

he Elephant to Hollywood by Michael Caine
"The man who lived underground" by Richard Wright.
"The influence of Darwinism to Philosophy"  by John Dewey

The first is Caine's autobiography. "Elephant" refers to Caine's former residence in London, "Elephant and Castle." Richard Wright was obviously alluding to Dostoevsky. Wright was able to rub elbows with Gertrude Stein and Albert Camus. Wright and Ralph Ellison were important African American writers.
   And the picture below is of Michael Caine in Cider house rules.
