About this product
- DescriptionThis is a winning collection from an author writing on his favourite topic: love. Each emotionally involving story illuminates a different kind of love: star-crossed, intense, needy, eternal, unrequited, even comical. Wilder's protagonists will be instantly recognizable to his fans: men and women who stumble into relationships that can fulfil them or kck them out cold. Which one it will be depends, often, on the smallest of gestures or reactions. Wilder's stories include: In Love for the First Time , about a lover so shy and studious that he's a 'funny duck' who has to be led by the hand by his equally inexperienced girlfriend; About Being in Love , featuring coarse but charming Buddy Silverman, who yearns for connection but looks for it in exactly the wrong kind of woman; and, The Woman in the Red Hat , who shows a writer who has only explored love in his books what the real thing feels like.
- Author BiographyGene Wilder (1933-2016) began acting when he was thirteen and writing for the screen since the early 1970s. After a small role in Bonnie and Clyde pulled him away from a career onstage, he was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Supporting Actor for his role as Leo Bloom in The Producers, which led to Blazing Saddles and then to another Academy nomination, this time for writing Young Frankenstein. Wilder has appeared in twenty-five feature films and a number of stage productions. His first book, about his own life, was Kiss Me Like A Stranger, and was followed by the novels My French Whore, The Woman Who Wouldn t, What Is This Thing Called Love? and Something to Remember You By.
