The Pantheon of Idols is

The Pantheon of Idols is a page of the literary and musical heroes of Chaleon I.O. Myme, a neurologist at Brandeis University. His detailed accounts of meeting The Amazing Kreskin and Kate Bush are so full of giddy joy and keen insight that I know I’m going to spend at least $100 buying the books and CDs he raves about. On my wish-list: Karel Capek’s War With the Newts, Paul Krassner’s Confessions of a Raving, Unconfined Nut, Raymond Smullyan’s This Book Needs No Title, and Daniel Pinkwater’s, Alan Mendelsohn, the Boy From Mars.
