Abstract:

"A high-school dropout who never attended film school, Quentin Tarantino got all the education he needed while working the register at Los Angeles's fabled Video Archives. His enthusiasms - for pop culture (foreign and domestic), eye-popping aesthetics, and genre films - would become notorious and infectious, and the outrageous success of Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and the Kill Bill volumes have nearly killed off Tarantino the man and signaled the birth of Tarantino the myth." "Here,

From legendary novelist and historian Jerome Charyn, is a portrait of both the man and the myth - and the mind behind them both. More than a biography, more than a critical study, this is a feisty and astute reckoning with Tarantino in toto."--BOOK JACKET.
