Abrams Books has released a trailer (yes, a book trailer) for the great Matt Zoller Seitz’s forthcoming The Wes Anderson Collection, which will be released into fine bookstores near you on October 8th. We heartily recommend you buy it. Did we mention it’s by, for our money, the foremost critical voice on Wes’ work? Did we mention it has an introduction by certified Important Author Michael Chabon? Did we mention it has a brand spanking new interview with Wes that encompasses his entire career to date? We didn’t, did we. Well it does, so be like Margot and sit in your zebra adorned room reading like a Tenenbaum. Pre-order from Amazon (by doing so you help support the site, and ensure we post at least three to four times a year).
Speaking of fine bookstores, Seitz will be appearing at the Word Bookstore in Brooklyn on October 8th, at New York’s legendary Strand Bookstore on October 10th, discussing the book and Wes’ work along with Lisa Rosman and the New Yorker’s Richard Brody, and Seitz will host a special screening of Bottle Rocket October 19th at Videology in Brooklyn.
Derek Hill’s great new book, Charlie Kaufman and Hollywood’s Merry Band of Pranksters, Fabulists and Dreamers: An Excursion Into the American New Wave, is out in the U.K. and coming soon to North America. More soon…
