9781564781604: A Night at the Movies, or, You Must Remember This

From Hollywood B-movies to Hollywood classics, ?"A Night at the Movies"?invents what "might have happened" in these Saturday afternoon matinees. Mad scientists, vampires, cowboys, dance-men, Chaplin, and Bogart, all flit across Robert Coover's riotously funny screen, doing things and uttering lines that are as shocking to them as they are funny to the reader. As Coover's Program announces, you will get Coming Attractions, The Weekly Serial, Adventure, Comedy, Romance, and more, but turned upside-down and inside-out.

About the Author:

Coover teaches at Brown University. He also lives in Providence, RI.

From Library Journal:

Coover here presents a series of short, connecting fictions associated with the cinema. Thus, we are given contrivances titled "Adventure," "Comedy," and "Romance," but they violate our expectations of these time-honored forms: "Shootout at Gentry's Junction" is a typical Western, but the good guys lose; in "Charlie in the House of Rue," a sort of funhouse, the tricks turn nasty, even murderous; and the romance in "You Must Remember This" sours into sordid adultery. These longer fictions are framed by shorter ones carrying out the cinematic conceit: there are previews, shorts, cartoons, even an intermission. Coover's style is viciously witty, so that one must finally ask "What's the point?" A brilliant but empty tour de force, though librarians should still consider this new work by the author of the well-received Gerard's Party ( LJ 2/1/86).Susan Avallone, "Library Journal"
