Milk: A Pictoral History of Harvey Milk; Dustin Lance Black

Milk: A Pictorial History of Harvey Milk and the Story Behind the Film Milk: A Pictorial History of Harvey Milk and the Story Behind the Film by Dustin Lance Black

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars

I wish this hadn't been a "behind the making of the movie" book. Even though the first two thirds were about Milk and his life, that last third seemed somehow wrong. Perhaps a thicker book, with more about the Castro, the gay rights movement, Milk and others would have been better; putting Milk more firmly in the context of his times and issues rather than as the inspiration for the film.
