DISSOLVE to: L.A.

Action Movie poems by James Trevelyan
illustrated by Emma Wright
 
DISSOLVE TO: L.A.

What does it mean to die in a movie scene? To exist on the peripheries? James Trevelyan takes twelve cult action films of the 1980s and 90s and gives life where it was extinguished too early. Speaking in the voices of such poignantly disposable characters as Cougar (Top Gun), GIRL (Lethal Weapon) and Donald Gennaro (Jurassic Park), Trevelyan provides a humorous and heart-breaking exploration of morality, mortality and our sense of self.

 

With 9 black line drawings by Emma Wright.

REVIEWs

"A rare and delightful read that manages to invoke the joy of realising that all those hours spent in front of 80s and 90s action movies were not spent alone, or in vain."
