An Evening with Quentin Tarantino
To celebrate the publication of Once Upon A Time in Hollywood
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to spend a hugely entertaining evening with one of the all-time master storytellers.
Join Tarantino live in London for one night only, to celebrate the publication of his long-awaited first work of fiction. At once hilarious, delicious, and brutal, this is the always surprising, sometimes shocking new novel based on his Academy Award-winning film.
In conversation with journalist and film critic Kim Newman, Tarantino will share his life-long passion for movie novelizations and explore why he wanted to contribute to this marginalized, and yet beloved, sub-genre of literature.
The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood novelization is an international bestseller and will be published in 27 languages. It went straight to number #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and was a top ten bestseller in the Sunday Times in the UK.
Praise for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
“Quentin Tarantino's first novel is, to borrow a phrase from his oeuvre, a tasty beverage...He's here to tell a story, in take-it-or-leave-it Elmore Leonard fashion, and to make room along the way to talk about some of the things he cares about -- old movies, male camaraderie, revenge and redemption, music and style...In Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Tarantino makes telling a page-turning story look easy, which is the hardest trick of all.” Dwight Garner, The New York Times
"…this is a work of literary art in its own right, a novel that, if the movie didn't exist, would captivate readers with its own knowing vision and zestful power.” Donna Seaman, Booklist
“Quentin Tarantino’s way with words proves infectious in this intriguing novelisation.” Rob Doyle, Observer
“Like the film on which it’s based, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the rollicking debut novel by Quentin Tarantino, is a seamless, seamy blend of fact and fiction.” Ed Potton, The Times
With his vibrant imagination and dedication to richly layered storytelling QUENTIN TARANTINO is one of the most celebrated filmmakers of his generation. He made his directorial debut in 1992 with RESERVOIR DOGS, and then co-wrote, directed and starred in one of his most beloved films, PULP FICTION, which won his first Oscar® for Best Screenplay. Followed by the highly acclaimed films JACKIE BROWN, KILL BILL VOL. 1 and VOL. 2, and DEATH PROOF, Tarantino then released his World War II epic, INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, DJANGO UNCHAINED (which won his second Oscar® for Best Screenplay), and the HATEFUL EIGHT.
