About This Item

UK,8vo wraps,paperback,limited,1st edn.NFINE.No owner inscrptn. Appears an unread copy as there are no reading creases to spine/ backstrip.Assumed production fault - laminate wrinkle/crease/tear(?) to bottom third of spine/backstrip (see also rja2008 - it has identical fault in same spot:same angle,length etc.,).Colour photographic upper wrap with minimal shelf-wear and negligible creasing to edges of wraps,though there is a slight dog-ear crease to rear,top corner and minisculely rubbed to foot of spine/backstrip with minimal loss.Top+fore-edges slightly aged; contents bright,tight and clean.UK,8vo p/back,limited 1st edn,vii-xpp+7-133pp includes title page,TARANTINO intro/interview,2 b/w portrait photographic frontispieces of Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette,a cast list,script and publisher's advert to rear. The first screenplay Tarantino ever wrote.In many ways his most personal film to date,reflecting as it does the days he spent working behind the counter at Video Archives in Manhattan Beach,California. True Romance's hero,Clarence,played by Christian Slater in the film, works in a comic book shop and absconds with a suitcase full of drugs, and his girlfriend Alabama,pursued cross-country from Detroit to LA by a bunch of mobsters out to retrieve their stolen goods. Containing all the Tarantino trademarks like bravura conversational cross-fire and audacious narrative structure,'True Romance' resonates throughout with intimations of what was to come (Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction) and clearly demonstrates why Tarantino is one of the most dynamic voices working in cinema today.A limited,promotional,1st edn p/back,published by Premiere magazine (a UK magazine - only available overseas by subscription) in association with Faber.An uncommon,collectable Tarantino piece of ephemera.See also rja2006, rja2007 and rja2009.
