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.
