The stills in it are amazing! I'm quite glad I bought when it first came out.
I thought it deserved a better paper than the one chosen by the editor. Not that the reproduction would be bad by any means - just that if you manage to get it out again on a slightly better paper, I'll seriously consider buying it again whatever the price...

I believe it.   And, Jeff, your book is the only major book on Peckinpah I don't have in my large collection.  (And I also have virtually all minor ones.)


English language only?

I'd love to hear people's recommendations for the best non-English publications

To me, Francois Causse's "Sam Peckinpah" is a very good way to go. "Il ritmo della violenza" edited by Franco La Polla is pretty good too (it's a collection of essays - not necessarily for someone who doesn't know Peckinpah). Gerard Camy's book was not bad, as far as I can remember. I don't read German too well, but Mike's book "Passion and poetry" has great stills. I don't read Spanish too well either, so I can't really comment on the books in Spanish. And the book by Hudec, in Czech, wasn't bad but I tend to disagree with his faithfulness to what Peckinpah may have said about his own work (in the Playboy interview for instance etc.).
Anyway most (if not almost all) of them are listed earlier in this topic.

Well Robert. I'll have to make your collection complete then.


Yes, you do!    I can't wait to read it.

By the way, my favorite book on Sam's films is Paul Seydor's.  It is impeccably written by a man who knows the English language as much as he knows Peckinpah's cinema.

I have virtually all the English language books on Peckinpah shown (and Mike's great German tome!), but not most of the 'novelizations'.
