QUENTIN TARANTINO was born in 1963 in Knoxville, Tennessee. He is the writer-director of nine feature films, the winner of two Academy Awards for Best Original Screenplay, and the author of the novel ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD. CINEMA SPECULATION is his first work of nonfiction.
Outrageous and addictively readable... The book is a reminder that
Tarantino is, in fact, a really good writer, and it should not be
so surprising that his brilliance as a screenwriter should be
transferable into fiction.
The book is a distinct experience - rangier, sexier, bloodier ... Classic, sparks-flying Tarantino ... The start of a new direction for this relentlessly inventive director.
The rollicking debut novel by Quentin Tarantino is a seamless, seamy blend of fact and fiction
The rat-a-tat pace of a screenplay ... Tarantino's concern here is world-building, luxuriating in an era and a genre that he is clearly fascinated by ... with undeniable flair
This book boasts some tremendous scenes, with magical dialogue, that I wouldn't have missed for the world
