Acquire for which library?: Bennett (Burnaby Mountain)
Thank you for taking the time to make a suggestion for purchase.
The library has a good collection of academic sources discussing Clint Eastwood’s work as a film maker (check out http://troy.lib.sfu.ca/search~S1/?searchtype=d&searcharg=eastwood+clint to find subject headings linking to the catalogue records for these). Very few of these have circulated suggesting there is not much demand for these titles.
This title is not widely reviewed but I found a reference to this title in the Irish Examiner that said “Richard Schickel, a long-term friend of Eastwood’s and author of a glossy coffee table book on his life and times – Clint: A Retrospective. ” Another review, in the Columbus Dispatch, says “Eastwood and Schickel provide the only perspectives, but the book doesn’t pretend to be more than an affectionate celebration of a legitimate icon.” These reviews suggests it would not be a substantial addition to our research collection. We do have Schickel’s biography of Eastwood which you may want to see, catalogue record at http://troy.lib.sfu.ca/record=b1826842~S1a.
You can make a request for this book from another library via our interlibrary loan page at http://godot.lib.sfu.ca:7888/godot/blank.cgi?hold_tab_dt=BOOK.
