Nan A. Talese,
Pub. Date:
1st ed.
Gus Van Sant is one of America's most original and celebrated filmmakers, whose credits include three films already considered classics: Drugstore Cowboy, which anticipated the current 90s revival; My Own Private Idaho, with River Phoenix and Keanu Reeves; and To Die For, a black comedy that was a critical and box-office success. With Pink, Gus Van Sant brings his unique and playful genius to the novel, and the result is both delirious and disarmingly tender.In Sasquatch, Oregon, Spunky Davis, middle-aged maker of infomercials, is trying to find his next assignment, finish the screenplay that he hopes will bring him Hollywood glory, and deal with the death of his friend and favorite infomercial presenter, the teen idol Felix Arroyo. Enter two young aspiring filmmakers, Jack and Matt, who captivate Spunky--especially as Jack bears an uncanny resemblance to the late Felix. But Jack and Matt are not what they appear to be--and are about to take Spunky to the mysterious realm known as Pink, where time and loss can be recovered.With its riot of typefaces, footnotes and drawings (by the author), its trenchant and ironic deconstruction of youth culture and filmmaking, and its charmingly innocent sensibility, Pink is an absolute delight.
