Publisher's Summary

An epic debut novel about a young man coming to terms with his life in the process and aftermath of making his first film - from critically acclaimed short story writer Owen King - for listeners of Joshua Ferris, Sam Lipsyte, and Chad Harbach.
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 family friend and contractor who can’t stop expanding his house; a happy-go-lucky college girlfriend and her husband, a retired Yankees catcher; 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 about letting go of everything - regret, resentment, ambition, 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 trials of ambition and art, of relationships and life, and of our attempts to survive it all.

Snoozefest

Unless you’re a film buff(like you want to make your own movies), you’re probably not going to like this book. The book is well-written to be sure, but why read it? It feels like it goes on forever. I’m falling asleep as I write this. Just save your credit and get another Stephen King. It’s unlikely you’ve read them all.

Just not for me

What would have made Double Feature better?

I was confused throughout and kept losing interest.
No desire to try again.

What do you think your next listen will be?

No idea.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Holter Graham?

I don't think so.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Double Feature?

I don't mind the narrator.

Any additional comments?

No
