I know Johnny has is big Nick Toches fan! At one time it was reported that he would be doing an audio tape of In the Hand of Dante but it never got off the ground for some reason.

The Last Opium Den looks really interesting too. I wonder if Johnny any of it, especially during filming of From Hell? This is complete conjecture. Another interesting two or three books to add to my list. ;-)

IMHO the way he's worded that, it appears he's read it. Thanks for finding this, Gilly. :cool:

You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

I've actually read The Last Opium Den. It's a very small book, but I liked it. I tried in The Hand of Dante and just couldn't get through it. Once again, Johnny finds a writer that create books that are a difficult read for many. The reviews listed on Amazon of this book don't look very favorable. Not sure I'll be trying this one.

Thanks gilly for once again finding us some great tidbits. I hadn't heard that NT had published anything recently.

I read In the Hand of Dante and agree with KYWoman that this is a tough book with several parallel storylines—the contemporary one includes the author as a fictionalized character in a sort of Godfather meets the DaVinci Code plot. There are some infuriating stretches and some really beautiful passages. It did make me want to tackle the Inferno.... someday.
