Patty Diphusa and other writings
New York: Faber & Faber, 1992.
First American edition.
Now considered a contemporary cult classic, this is Pedro Almodovar's first appearance in English.
The book was published in an extremely small and limited print run as a hardcover original only because the author was not yet the global sensation he is today.
"These irresistibly funny pieces about the Golden Age of Madrid pop, punk, comics, and general frivolity were written during the 1980's, when Almodovar came of age as a filmmaker. Inspired in part by Andy Warhol's films, the title story features the adventures of a spunky porn star."
Book has tiny dent to top front corner, otherwise new.
