Storytelling - The Book

Faber and Faber Inc., the same publishers that put out Solondz' Welcome To the Dollhouse and Happiness screenplays, have already announced the release of their Storytelling paperback (ISBN: 0-571-21283-2; dare we hope it will contain the now infamous, excised sequences from the film?), with a December 3rd release date and a list price of $13.00. Their description reads, "Todd Solandz offers two separate stories that unfold amid the sadly comical terrain of college and high school. A young female student has a stranger-than-fiction sexual encounter with her creative writing tutor; and a struggling documentarian finds himself drawn into his material." It's available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, etc.

On a similar note, according to Amazon, the Storytelling soundtrack, on Matador Records, has a November 13th release date.

Official Storytelling Site Up

Fine's Line official Storytelling site is finally live, confirming that the film won't be released until 2002. There's really not much else there, yet, but at least it shows Fine Line is finally starting the publicity machine ahead for Solondz' latest effort. Coming as no surprise, the site lists the lead actors and does not include James Van Der Beek or Heather Matarazzo (it also notes its R rating). The address is:; which has also been added to my links column.
