Abstract:

Filmmaker Pedro Almodovar has been called the "Spanish Andy Warhol" for his influence on Spanish popular culture, and has gained international notoriety for such films as Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Law of Desire and Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! Now, for the first time in English, Patty Diphusa and Other Writings brings together the collected works of Pedro Almodovar. Here we see the many sides of Almodovar: in the serial adventure of his alter-ego, Patty.

Diphusa, in short stories, autobiographical pieces and tongue-in-cheek advice for the would-be filmmaker. The first half of the book consists of the street-wise memoirs of Patty Diphusa, Madrid scenester and star of X-rated comic books. From high-society gallery openings to the bathrooms of basement discos, Patty cuts a kinky swath through Madrid's counter-culture and takes a skewed look at the human condition. Also included are stories and essays on such subjects as.

Almodovar's films, his feelings for Madrid, why Gone with the Wind is a great film and "Uncle" Almodovar's "Advice on How to Become an Internationally Famous Filmmaker." Colorful, raunchy and camp, Patty Diphusa is an essential companion to Almodovar's films and a testimonial to Spain's flourishing popular culture.
