Rudolph Wurlitzer is the screenwriter of Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid and Two-Lane Blacktop. He is also the author of the novels Flats, Nog, Quake, and The Drop Edge of Yonder, and the travel diary Hard Travel to Sacred Places. He lives in Hudson, New York.Review:
The return of Slow Fade is a fine thing. It's Rudy Wurlitzer's greatest work of fiction . . . and one of the best American books there is.” Alex Cox, director, Repo Man and Sid & Nancy
Slow Fade comes out of the space between real life and the movies and closes it up for good. A great book: beautiful, funny, and dangerous.” Michael Herr, screenwriter, Full Metal Jacket
If you splice Rudy Wurlitzer's Slow Fade to his other four novels, they become a beautiful quintet, never losing their miraculous beat.” Robert Downey, director, Hugo Pool and Putney Swope
Slow Fade may be the most traditional of Wurlitzer's novels, and the time-honored pleasures of the novel are here in abundance: a twisting and turning story about fathers and sons, power and poverty, violence and fate. Some may read it as a 'roman a clef' about certain notorious Hollywood players, but that seems rather secondary to me. Wurlitzer has fashioned a rare and wonderful thing a deeply spiritual novel, without one whiff of incense or candle wax.” Scott Spencer, author, Endless Love and Waking the Dead
