Once Upon A Time in Hollywood: A Novel — By Quentin Tarantino

$9.99 USD

 "Quentin Tarantino turns his most recent movie into a pulpy page-turner....If it were written better, it'd be written worse."

Dwight Garner, Books of the Times, New York Times



Quentin Tarantino’s long-awaited first work of fiction is a novel that expands the story told in his Academy Award-winning film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

In Once Upon a Time . . . in Hollywood: A Novel, Quentin Tarantino re-creates the glamorous and gritty heyday of late ’60s Hollywood in the weeks leading up to one of the most shocking crimes in modern American history. Revisiting and expanding the story told on film, Tarantino’s novel is full of the unusual twists and turns that are a hallmark of his acclaimed storytelling.

The story tracks four principal characters both before and after the events of the film:

RICK DALTON — Once he had his own TV series, but now Rick’s a washed-up villain-of-the week, drowning his sorrows in whiskey sours. Will a phone call from Rome save his fate or seal it?

CLIFF BOOTH — Rick’s stunt double, and the most infamous man on any movie set because he’s the only one there who might have got away with murder. . . .

SHARON TATE — She left Texas to chase a movie-star dream, and found it. Sharon’s salad days are now spent on Cielo Drive, high in the Hollywood Hills.

CHARLES MANSON — The ex-con’s got a bunch of zonked-out hippies thinking he’s their spiritual leader, but he’d trade it all to be a rock ‘n’ roll star.

Tarantino revisits the world of his film, providing original and unique content that makes for a surprising and sometimes shocking reading experience. The novel explores the characters’ backstories, providing important details and information, and expands the story beyond the film’s ending.

He also delves deeper into the always fascinating figure of Charles Manson, offering his own take on his motivations, and even answers a central mystery of the film: “Did Cliff Booth kill his wife?”

Once Upon a Time . . . in Hollywood earned almost $400 million at the box office and won Oscars for Best Supporting Actor (Brad Pitt) and Best Production Design, and it was nominated for eight more, including Best Film, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Director for Tarantino.

But even for fans who have watched the movie multiple times, this book holds a surprise or new spin on almost every page.

A love letter to the 1970s paperback, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood: A Novel is being published in mass market paperback — as well as e-book and audio editions — to pay homage to Tarantino’s fervent love of the format, and particularly to the lost art of the movie novelization.

Tarantino’s passion as a book lover will also be on full display as he promotes this blockbuster novel widely.

Vivid, funny, unforgettable, Once Upon a Time . . . in Hollywood: A Novel teases readers with the imaginative narrative force that makes Tarantino truly one of a kind. In fact, "Tarantinoesque" was recently added to the Oxford English Dictionary to describe this unique American storyteller’s work. There is simply no other writer-director like Tarantino—his brilliant dialogue, surprising plotting, and original narrative style have earned him a passionate and devoted fanbase worldwide. 

MAKE NOTE! A deluxe hardcover edition of Once Upon a Time . . . in Hollywood will be published this Fall, it will feature even more material. What a great holiday gift!!!

That book will be followed by Tarantino’s first work of nonfiction, Cinema Speculation, which is his unique take on 1970s movies.
