“Mabel and Me is a rare triumph of the vernacular. It is a lovely and exciting work of fiction, which deserves the avid attention not just of the cinema community, but of everyone who values good writing and good reading."
— Richard Schickel
Watch the book trailer for Mabel and Me, A Novel About the Movies:
“The cinema is not just pictures. It is something great, mysterious and sublime, for which one should not spare any effort, and for which one should not fail to risk one’s life if the need arises.” – Abel Gance
Of course, it doesn’t have to be the movies. We all yearn to give ourselves to something, completely. What happens when we find it? Does it liberate us, or destroy us? That’s really what Mabel and Me is about.
