New book on the 1927 Louise Brooks film Now We're in the Air

PostTue Nov 14, 2017 10:30 am

Today would have been Louise Brooks' 111th birthday. Thus, I am very pleased to announce the availability of my NEWEST book, "Now We're in the Air."

This companion to the once "lost" 1927 Louise Brooks' film tells the story of the film’s making, its reception, and its discovery in Prague by film preservationist Robert Byrne. Also considered is the surprising impact this otherwise little known film has had on Brooks’ life and career. This 130 page, 8" x 10" book features some 15,000 words of text including two rare fictionalizations of the movie story, more than 75 little seen images, detailed credits, trivia, and a foreword by Byrne.

I hope those interested will acquire a copy of this illustrated tome, which is available on amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, Indiebound.org, and elsewhere.

Looking forward to the book, Thomas, almost as much as I'm looking forward to seeing the rediscovered footage!

Having thoroughly enjoyed both your previous book on Beggars of Life and your commentary on the Lobster release of that film, these are splendid times to be a Brooksian.

Ordered. Looks like another great stocking-stuffer, Thomas.

With two works focusing on Ms. Brook's legacy out this holiday season ...your's and Pamela's Pandora's Box book... every silent film fan's joy should be that much jollier.

Let's not forget my earlier 2017 book, Beggars of Life: A Companion to the 1928 Film. See https://www.amazon.com/Beggars-Life-Companion-1928-Film/dp/0692879536/

It too would make an excellent stocking stuffer, as well as a companion piece to the new Beggars of Life DVD / Blu-ray from KinoLorber
