About this title

Synopsis:

A unique mixture of fact and fiction recreates 1950s Hollywood in a tale of homoeroticism, mental disintegration, social commentary, and compassionate human insight surrounding the mysterious death of James Whale, director of Frankenstein. 15,000 first printing. Tour.

Review:

This novel--the basis for the critically acclaimed 1998 film Gods and Monsters--re-creates the last days of film director James Whale, who was found dead in his swimming pool, an apparent suicide, in 1957. Bram offers sharp insights into the darkly comic sensibility that infuses Whale's two most famous films, Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein, as memories of an impoverished English childhood, the trenches of World War I, and Hollywood studios compete for space in a mind whose defenses have been weakened by a stroke. Written in the fluid present tense of a cinematic treatment, Father of Frankenstein is a powerful evocation of an era before Hollywood celebrities could proclaim anything but domestic heterosexuality to the outside world.
