Hot off the Press! Big Red

 Big Red reimagines the tragic career of Rita Hayworth and her indomitable husband, Orson Welles.

“Reanimating such classic films as Gilda and The Lady from ShanghaiBig Red is a bittersweet paean to Hollywood’s Golden Age.  A tender yet honest portrait of a time before blockbusters and film franchises.  One that promises to consume both Hollywood cinephiles and neophytes alike. Lauded for his “polymorphous imagination” (Jonathan Lethem), Charyn once again has created one of the most inventive novels in recent American literature.”


In Closing.

Jerome is a storyteller. He spends his days writing, which brings him great joy.  Based on his illustrious career you can only imagine the stories he has and still creates to this day!
