ZEN AND THE ART OF 'KILL BILL' MEMOIR WRITING

So, grasshopper, you loved the "Kill Bill" films? Get the inside story from "The Kill Bill Diary" (Harper, paperback, $16.95) by the man who played Bill the scruffy-haired star of the cult classic "Kung Fu" TV series, David Carradine. He turns out to be kind of a Shaolin master of life as well as of the martial arts.
