Ok, but not what I was hoping for

What did you like best about Arts and Letters? What did you like least?

The idea about righting by starting: I remember....

Would you recommend Arts and Letters to your friends? Why or why not?

No. I really only bought it for the sections on artists, which are very short and don't provide the sort of insight I was hoping for

Could you see Arts and Letters being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
