PDF Pink author Gus Van Sant Read

I read this book very uickly which is a testament to the easy going writing style despite the plot not being easily defined The novel itself is a trifle bizzare a cross between Tom Robbins Douglas Coupland and the movies of Gus Van Sant but it maintains a momentum that pulls you through despite the ending feeling a little slapdash and the concept of Pink an alternate dimension being shoehorned in at the end and only partially developedThe main character is a infofilm director named Spunky who is grieving the loss of his good friend Felix who died way too young Spunky also courts the attentions of Matt and Jack aspiring film makers who often seem to be taking him for a ride mentioning work they are doing without any evidence of it Spunky is a character where reality is slipping away from him He has had some success but not enough Life is passing him by and the story of Pink is him trying to get back into the stream of it There are also numerous observations on the nature of reality and filmmaking which were interesting to readOverall I found Pink an enjoyable ride Mind numbingA dentist visit may be enjoyable Very crazy but it is Gus Van Sant and a character inspired in River soI enjoyed A great book a look inside the life of a young River soI enjoyed A great book a look inside the life of a young film maker probably very autobiographical Very interesting and fun and a great slice of life of Gus s life highly recommend especially for film makers What can I say There are times when even in his films I continue this lovehate relationship with Gus Mostly it s his films I continue this lovehate relationship with Gus Mostly it s but recently I wrote a review on the film Paranoid Park which wasn t favorableThis is a first and possibly last novel by Van Zant and understandably It felt as if I was reading a complete list of mindless thoughts and babbling about life from his past the Gus Van Sant goes from auteur to author in an brilliant inventive and endlessly entertaining first novel that reads like a Warholian mix of Kurt Vonnegut and Tom RobbinsIn the town of Sasuatch Oregon Spunky Davis middle aged maker of infomercials is trying to find his next assignment finish the screenplay that he hopes will bring him Hollywood glory and deal with the death of his friend and favorite infomercial. ,
