Finally! University Press of Mississippi has just released official information on Amazon about the two books of 2011 I am most looking forward to getting:

- Working with Disney: Interviews with Animators, Producers, and Artists by Don Peri

- Walt before Mickey: Disney's Early Years, 1919-1928 by Tim Susanin

If you enjoyed Don Peri's first collection of interviews, Working with Walt, and if you like Walt's People, this book will definitely be a "must-have".

As to Tim Susanin's book, I read the manuscript a few months ago and am able to confirm that it is one of the best Disney history books of the last decade. Not to be missed in any way, shape or form!

I agree!

Don Peri's first book was fantastic and deserves space on the bookshelf of every Disney enthusiast. I am sure his second book will be equally great and can't wait to buy a copy.

As for Tim Susanin - he's a very, very, thorough researcher, (along the lines of Michael Barrier), and if the final version of his book is anythng like the draft I read several months ago, his book is a winner too!

Congrats to both authors for adding to the knowledge of Walt Disney and his staff!
