Lady Gregory's Irish Mythology: It's two books into one, Gods and Fighting Men and Cuchulain of Muirthemne.
There comes a time, thief, when the jewels cease to sparkle, when the gold loses its luster, when the throne room becomes a prison, and all that is left is a father's love for his child.

Interesting. I'm still digging into his catalogue here - got The Street Lawyer as well. After that perhaps I will check out his non-law books.

I picked up "The Innocent Man" while waiting in line at the drugstore today.  I'll have to check if I'm missing anything else by him.

"Black Elk Speaks" by Black Elk and John Neihardt. Totally awesome and very inspiring and in-depth book. What makes is diffrent is the perspective of the old Black Elk and his way with words. Outstading piece.

All lies.

I do not want to go on a tangent here but why did you say that? On what account? Whu are you telling me I am lying? Do you have any basis for that? Or are you saying that the book by Neidhardt and Black Elk are lies?

I've always found it impossible to describe, you just have to read it and let it sink in.  It has to be one of the greatest books in the history of books, period.

Correctamundo! It is quite difficult to describe, but to give you a basic outline, a man writes about the history of Pontius Pilate and the devil visits Atheistic Soviet Russia to harass him, from what I gather.

A very amusing novel!
