Francis Ford Coppolas Zoetrope All Story


Francis Ford Coppolas Zoetrope All Story Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The literary journal Zoetrope, founded in 1997 by film director Francis Ford Coppola, proved an instant and spectacular success with readers and critics nationwide. That its mission, to seek out and publish only the brightest, most original writing that intersects film and fiction, has worked triumphantly is attested to by the numerous awards it has garnered in only two years, from such publications as Bestt American Short Stories, The O. Henry Award Prize Stories, Best New Stories from the South, and many more. And Zoetrope is equally known for having discovered new writers who have rocketed to fame, including Melissa Bank and Sarah Powers. Francis Ford Coppola's Zoetrope: All-Story presents some of the best writing to have appeared in the magazine to date, including work by Amy Bloom, Peter Lefcourt, Philip Gourevitch, Lucia Nevai, Melissa Bank, and Tim Gautreaux, among others. In addition, original essays and fiction never before published appear here, including work by John Nichols, Salman Rushdie, and Robert Olen Butler. The result is an exciting and vital collection, a must-have for readers of today's best writing and for fans of today's best films.


Francis Ford Coppola brings together the worlds of film and fiction in a spectacular collection from bright newcomers and proven masters of the form
