Quentin Tarantino Announces New Book To Release This Fall

Quentin Tarantino has announced the release of a new book, titled Cinema Speculation, with a release date of October 25th.

This is the second book Tarantino has released after last year’s novelization of Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood and will tackle the subject of film criticism and history through key American movies released in the 1970s that the writer/filmmaker grew up watching. The book completes Tarantino’s two-book deal with HarperCollins, but he has gone on record saying that he had more book ideas in mind after writing up Cinema Speculation.

The book’s synopsis reads: “In addition to being among the most celebrated of contemporary filmmakers, Quentin Tarantino is possibly the most joyously infectious movie lover alive. For years he has touted in interviews his eventual turn to writing books about films. Now, with Cinema Speculation, the time has come, and the results are everything his passionate fans—and all movie lovers—could have hoped for. Organized around key American films from the 1970s, all of which he first saw as a young moviegoer at the time, this book is as intellectually rigorous and insightful as it is rollicking and entertaining. At once, film criticism, film theory, a feat of reporting, and wonderful personal history, it is all written in the singular voice recognizable immediately as QT’s and with the rare perspective about cinema possible only from one of the greatest practitioners of the artform ever.”

You can already pre-order the book here, and on all major websites where books are sold.
