    One thought on “in the company of men”

    1. Neil Labute is a bastard. And by that I mean he can write the worst people in the world and make you like them. I really want to see this movie now. Labute's dialogue is natural and stylized all at once. My advice is to read his interview at the beginning of the book after you've read the script.

    2. I enjoy being taken behind the scene in another culture and so gave this four stars. 1979 Libya is described by a nine year old boy - however the author admits to being thiry and puts adult and philosophical reactions into the voice of the nine year old.
