A Filmmaker Explores His Addiction to Reading


Steve Fesenmaeir sent over This NYTimes Story on \"The Stones of Summer,\" a luxuriantly long-winded coming-of-age story that roams from Iowa to Mexico in language ripe with early-70\'s eccentricity.
Mr. Moskowitz\'s film, a documentary called \"Stone Reader, \" that opens at the Film Forum next month, is his effort to get to the bottom of Dow Mossman\'s story. A prizewinner at last year\'s Slamdance Film Festival, an alternative festival that coincides with the Sundance Film Festival, \"Stone Reader\" is devoted entirely to matters of publishing, criticism and reading.
