    I’m currently reading THE LONG KNIVES ARE CRYING and cannot put the book down. It’s the first book I’ve read of Mr. Marshall’s. I see in his biography on the flap that he’s written screen plays. In the doldrums of dull movies lately, it’s time for Mr. Marshall to turn this excellent book into a movie.

    Please extend to him my thanks for these past hours of great entertainment and incites into Indian life in the 19th century.
