New Louise Brooks book coming in Spring

There is a new Louise Brooks book on the horizon! 

It's called LULU, and its by longtime Louise Brooks Society member and Hollywood writer / screenwriter Samuel Bernstein. The author describes the book as a non-fiction novel, and it centers on the actress and the time around the making of Pandora's Box.The book is due out from Walford Press in the Spring of 2010. There is a bit more info from the publisher here.

I have an advance copy, and am looking forward to reading it.

I've been in email contact with Samuel for a number of years. He, like most all of us, is a sincere and longtime fan of Louise Brooks.

Just who is Samuel Bernstein? "Born in Phoenix, Arizona in 1970, Samuel Bernstein is the award-winning author of Mr. Confidential, winner of a 2008 Hermes Award for Non-Fiction, and which is now being adapted into a stage musical. He is the writer and producer of the Paramount and Showtime film Bobbie's Girl and the multi-festival award-winning Silent Lies, in addition to writing for various television programmes. He is the winner of a Stonewall Book Award from the American Library Association for his work on Uncommon Heroes." Check out his IMDb entry or his website for his various projects at Babyhead Productions.

  1. I wonder if Mr. Bernstein is committed to that cover, or if a better solution can be found?

  2. Interesting...I'll be sure to check out. I agree, though, I'd hope they could come up with a better cover! It was the same with the Letters from Louise Brooks book.
