Owen King has added loads of bonus material to this edition of his debut novel, DOUBLE FEATURE, making this a truly unique collectible.
Filmmaker Sam Dolan has a difficult relationship with his father, B-movie actor Booth Dolan – a boisterous, opinionated, lying lothario whose screen legacy falls somewhere between cult hero and pathetic. Allie, Sam’s dearly departed mother, was a woman whose only fault, in Sam’s eyes, was her eternal affection for his father. Also included in the cast of indelible characters: a precocious, frequently violent half-sister; a conspiracy-theorist second wife; an Internet-famous roommate; a contractor who can’t stop expanding his house; a happy-go-lucky college girlfriend and her husband, a deranged ballplayer; the morose producer of a true crime show; and a slouching indie film legend. Not to mention a tragic sex monster.
Unraveling the tumultuous, decades-spanning story of the Dolan Family’s friends, lovers, and adversaries, Double Feature is an epic novel about letting go of everything – regret, resentment, dignity, moving pictures, the dead – and taking it again from the top. Combining propulsive storytelling and mordant wit against the backdrop of indie filmmaking, Double Feature brims with a deep understanding of the truths of ambition and art, of relationships and life and of our attempts to survive it all.
This limited edition includes a tip sheet drawn by bestselling author Joe Hill (Heart-Shaped Box, NOS4A2), an afterward by Harvey Award-wining author Scott Snyder (American Vampire, Batman), as well as deleted scenes and other bonus materials that expand on the world of the novel.
