Summer Reading List 2015: Game-Changing Inspiration

On a recent trip to Portland, Oregon, I not-so-accidentally landed in my favorite book shop (more like a department store for bookworms like myself).

Fine Cinema – Io sono l’amore – I Am Love

I marveled Luca Guadagnino’s direction of this beautiful piece. It truly was a feast of symbolism for the mind and cinematic candy for the eyes.
