Promotional Information

/ Key title A razor-sharp and achingly funny memoir of the men and movies that shaped one woman's life. / 'Madame Depardieu and the Beautiful Strangers' is destined to become a cult classic: it will appeal to everyone who has ever violently argued over a film or who has secretly imagined a screen legend into their own life. / There will be guaranteed feature and review coverage for Antonia Quirke's unique take on the power of cinema and Antonia will be available for interviews, talks and signings on publication. / Mixing the squalor of a London life closer to 'Withnail and I' than to 'Bridget Jones' with a genuinely obsessive streak which would put Nick Hornby to shame, Antonia Quirke's descriptions of her struggles, humiliations, intoxications and occasional triumphs introduces an utterly engaging and real character. Readers, beware, you cannot fail to be seduced.

Reviews

'Antonia's book is wonderfully written!The Drunk in Edinburgh and the Boyfriend and the Car are brilliant and underneath the (deliberately) purple prose about actors is a real, and to me, moving understanding of the craft. Please pass these words on -- it is a rare and daring book.' Alan Rickman 'Quirke comes across as a disarming mix of David Thomson and Jenny Diski, all the while remaining unique and idiosyncratic.' Waterstones Books Quarterly
