About this product
- DescriptionFour writers from around the globe. One missing. The second, a suicide. The third, killed during a police chase in a 220-foot fall from the Oakland Bay Bridge. The fourth, doing a 16-year prison stretch. The dark mysteries of each of the four troubled lives are recounted then illuminated by the writings of the authors themselves. These four screenplays from around the globe - a murder mystery, a quirky comedy, a heist film, and an edgy, paraid teen thriller - reflect the murky, ironic world of these men and women who dreamed of being writers for the silver screen. * Ace Of Diamonds - a gambler with unique skills becomes entwined in a murderous conspiracy. * Bob - a sincere man's struggle to remain his simple self - in a world dragging him in its own disastrous directions. * Trade Secrets - a dark, murky glimpse at the world of consumer advertising. * Savant - a twisty heist film with a rare touch of humanity. All four film scripts offer satisfying, well-developed characters, unusual situations and stories, and a surfeit of surprises.
- Author BiographyWolf G. Tarsier, the editor and biographer, is no stranger to crime and scandal. Tarsier draws on a twelve-year career covering the police blotter in a region the border of France and Germany. Tarsier became fascinated with the criminal underworld on both sides of the border. There is more drama in crime than in the theatre departments of most universities, Tarsier once remarked in his newspaper column. That may have been true - until Tarsier entered academia himself. Today, Tarsier is Chairman of the theatre department at an English university with a fast-developing a reputation for its unusual dramaturgical stance. The delineation between dramatic fact and fiction is fading, explains Tarsier. And this dissolution has provided us with exciting new ways to appreciate both the dramatic and biographical arts.
