Double Feature LIMITED  $65.00 
9781451676891LIM

Description

DOUBLE FEATURE - SIGNED LIMITED - 1 / 500.

by Owen King.

Signed by Owen King and Scott Snyder.

LIMITED OVERVIEW:

This limited edition includes a tip sheet drawn by bestselling author Joe Hill (Heart-Shaped Box, NOS4A2), an afterward by Harvey Award-wining author Scott Snyder (American Vampire, Batman), as well as deleted scenes and other bonus materials that expand on the world of the novel.

 

STORY OVERVIEW:

Filmmaker Sam Dolan has a difficult relationship with his father, B-movie actor Booth Dolan—a boisterous, opinionated, lying lothario whose screen legacy falls somewhere between cult hero and pathetic. Allie, Sam’s dearly departed mother, was a woman whose only fault, in Sam’s eyes, was her eternal affection for his father. Also included in the cast of indelible characters: a precocious, frequently violent half-sister; a conspiracy-theorist second wife; an Internet-famous roommate; a family friend and contractor who can’t stop expanding his house; a happy-go-lucky college girlfriend and her husband, a retired Yankees catcher; the morose producer of a true crime show; and a slouching indie film legend. Not to mention a tragic sex monster.

Unraveling the tumultuous, decades-spanning story of the Dolan family’s friends, lovers, and adversaries, Double Feature is about letting go of everything—regret, resentment, ambition, dignity, moving pictures, the dead—and taking it again from the top. Combining propulsive storytelling and mordant wit against the backdrop of indie filmmaking, Double Feature brims with a deep understanding of the trials of ambition and art, of relationships and life, and of our attempts to survive it all.

REVIEWS:

Double Feature is a beautiful, wrenching beginning, and Owen King is a young writer of immense promise.” -- Larry McMurtry.

Superbly imagined lit-fic about family, fathers and film. --Kirkus.

“King’s first novel, about facing reality and failed aspirations, is irreverent and ambitious. Its sweeping scope covers several generations in a humorous and cynical narrative that bounces between decades. Entertaining and thought-provoking…” --Booklist.
