PATTY DIPHUSA AND OTHER WRITINGS - signed or inscribed book

1992, ISBN: 9780571129164

Hardcover, ID: 104317237

London, England: Faber & Faber, 1992. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. London, England: Faber & Faber, 1992. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 155 pages. The author/filmmaker's debut collection of prose pieces. Now considered a contemporary classic. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United Kingdom. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. Originally published in Spain in 1991, the author was not yet the global sensation that he is today. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Pedro Almodovar's "Patty Diphusa And Other Writings" in a felicitous English translation. "These irresistibly funny pieces about the Golden Age of Madrid pop, punk, comics, and general frivolity were written during the 1980's, when Almodovar came of age as a filmmaker. Inspired in part by Andy Warhol's films, the title story features the adventures of a spunky star. The eponymous Patty, a self-absorbed young woman devoted to pleasure and in search of fame, breezes through the Madrid underground. Patty's innocence - and Almodovar's genius - makes these scenes funny. The irrepressible author cannot resist inserting himself as a character in the section entitled 'Filler', which contains some short sketches, a discussion about the importance of Madrid in his films, a self-interview, and tongue-in-cheek predictions for the end of the century. His charming autobiographical essay, 'Advice On How to Become An Internationally Famous Filmmaker', recounts the steps he took to find his avocation. Almodovar's quick wit, affable writing style, and refusal to take himself and the film community seriously infuse this collection with originality" (Publisher's blurb). One of the world's most influential and most beloved "culture heroes", this is an absolute "must-have" title for Pedro Almodovar film aficionado/collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Pedro Almodovar. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Laid-in is a Souvenir Postcard, "Viva Pedro", printed to commemorate the filmmaker's major retrospective in New York City, which Almodovar attended, and through which this signed copy was obtained. This title is a late-modern classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First British Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> One of the greatest writer/filmmakers of our time. A fine collectible copy. . ISBN 0571129161., Faber & Faber, 1992

Faber & Faber. Very Good in Very Good jacket Very Good in Very Good jacket 0.8 x 6.0 x 8.8 inches. Condition very good in blue boards with black cloth spine, clean tight copy, like new, may never have been read. From Publishers Weekly: These irresistibly funny pieces about "the golden age of Madrid pop, punk, comics and general frivolity" were written during the 1980s, when Almodovar ( Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! ) came of age as a filmmaker. Inspired in part by Andy Warhol's films, the title story features the adventures of a spunky porn star. The eponymous Patty, a self-absorbed young woman devoted to pleasure and in search of fame, breezes through the Madrid underground, unfazed by rape, drugs and encounters with men and women of all sexual persuasions. Patty's innocence--and Almodovar's considerable talent--makes these often tasteless scenes funny. The irrepressible author can't resist inserting himself as a character in the section entitled "Filler, " which contains some short sketches, a discussion about the importance of Madrid in his films, a self-interview and tongue-in-cheek predictions for the '90s. His charming autobiographical essay, "Advice on How to Become an Internationally Famous Filmmaker, " recounts the steps he took to find his avocation. Almodovar's quick wit, affable writing style and refusal to take himself and the film community seriously infuse this collection with originality. Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc. .
