"A chilling, baffling psychological fooler ... sparkles with all the juicy terror that can attack the heart and body." — Newsweek Blonde, beautiful, and mysterious Dany Longo is trembling with doubt behind her dark glasses and self-assured veneer. As she races south from Paris in a stolen sports car, she has no idea where she is going or why. Nearsighted behind her shades and timid beneath her bravado, she's oblivious to the sinister maze of sex, deception, and murder that surrounds her. But throughout the journey, Dany finds traces of herself along the way — even in places she has never been. Is she the killer the police are looking for? Has she plunged into someone else's nightmare? Or is she a pawn in a deadly game? The answer lies within four elements: the lady, the car, the glasses, and a gun, each of which holds a clue to Dany's identity and her deadly secret. "A grand master!" — Kirkus Reviews "Japrisot is a magician who gives voice to silence and lays out truth naked on the page." — Le Monde

Voted one of the Sunday Times 100 Best Crime Novels 'Classic suspenseful noir from "the French Graham Greene"' The Times Dany Longo is blonde, beautiful -- and thoroughly unpredictable. After doing a favour for her boss, she finds herself behind the wheel of his exquisite Thunderbird on a sun-kissed Parisian morning. On impulse she decides to head south. What started as an impromptu joy-ride rapidly takes a turn for the chilling when strangers all along the unfamiliar route swear they recognise Dany from the previous day. But that's impossible: she was at work, she was in Paris, she was miles away... wasn't she? From the author of A Very Long Engagement comes a tangled, terrifying psychological thriller worthy of Georges Simenon, Paula Hawkins or Patricia Highsmith.

The New Biographical Dictionary Of Film

For almost thirty years, David Thomson’s Biographical Dictionary of Film has been not merely “the finest reference book ever written about movies” (Graham Fuller, Interview), not merely the “desert island book” of art critic David Sylvester, not merely “a great, crazy masterpiece” (Geoff Dyer, The Guardian), but also “fiendishly seductive” (Greil Marcus, Rolling Stone). This new edition updates the older entries and adds 30 new ones: Darren Aronofsky, Emmanuelle Beart, Jerry Bruckheimer, Larry Clark, Jennifer Connelly, Chris Cooper, Sofia Coppola, Alfonso Cuaron, Richard Curtis, Sir Richard Eyre, Sir Michael Gambon, Christopher Guest, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Spike Jonze, Wong Kar-Wai, Laura Linney, Tobey Maguire, Michael Moore, Samantha Morton, Mike Myers, Christopher Nolan, Dennis Price, Adam Sandler, Kevin Smith, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlize Theron, Larry Wachowski and Andy Wachowski, Lew Wasserman, Naomi Watts, and Ray Winstone. In all, the book includes more than 1300 entries, some of them just a pungent paragraph, some of them several thousand words long. In addition to the new “musts,” Thomson has added key figures from film history–lively anatomies of Graham Greene, Eddie Cantor, Pauline Kael, Abbott and Costello, Noël Coward, Hoagy Carmichael, Dorothy Gish, Rin Tin Tin, and more. Here is a great, rare book, one that encompasses the chaos of art, entertainment, money, vulgarity, and nonsense that we call the movies. Personal, opinionated, funny, daring, provocative, and passionate, it is the one book that every filmmaker and film buff must own. Time Out named it one of the ten best books of the 1990s. Gavin Lambert recognized it as “a work of imagination in its own right.” Now better than ever–a masterwork by the man playwright David Hare called “the most stimulating and thoughtful film critic now writing.”

From the very infancy of the film industry, filmmakers have relied heavily upon literature as the foundation for their movie material. Well-known literary works such as Dickens's ""A Christmas Carol"" and Hawthorne's ""The Scarlet Letter"" were adapted to film in the era, as were such books as Thomas Dixon's Jr.'s ""The Klansman"" basis for the film ""Birth of a Nation"". In recent years, Nick Hornsby's ""About a Boy"" and each of Helen Fielding's ""Bridget Jones's Diary"" novels were the basis for popular movies bearing the same names. A guide to English-language works that have been adapted as theatrical and television films, this volume includes books (both fiction and non-fiction), short stories, newspaper and magazine articles and poems. Entries are arranged alphabetically by literary title with cross-listings for films made under different titles. Each entry includes the original works title, author, year of first publication, literary prizes, and a brief plot summary. Information on film adaptation(s) of the work, including adaptation titles, director, screenwriter, principal cast and the names of the characters they portray, major awards, and availability in the most common formats (DVD, VHS) is also offered.
