Three books I'm soooo looking forward to in 2014

Sounds like it's going to be a good year for books.  I'm sure there will be more, but for now these three are are on my must-buy list: 

February: Mad as Hell: The Making of Network and the Fateful Vision of the Angriest Man in Movies by Dave Itzkoff.  Just what it says, the story of Oscar-winning screenwriter Paddy Chayefsky and the making of his strangely prophetic film Network.

Self-described Writer, Actor & Tall Person John Cleese's memoirs are due out in September.  Hopefully this will include tons of behind the scenes goodies from Monty Python and Fawlty Towers.

Also out in September: The return of the Demon Dog, James Ellroy, with PerfidiaI blogged about this a couple months ago when it was first announced.  Perfidia will be the first entry in Ellroy's second "L.A. Quartet".
