Movieola is a collection of linked short stories that delights and exploits the language and paraphernalia of industrial Hollywood. The collection delves into a night at the movies, featuring all the familiar typesthe rom-com, the action-adventure, the superhero and the spybut the narratives are still under construction, and every story line is an opportunity for the unimaginable twist. Motive and identity are constantly shifting in these short stories that offer both narrative and anti-narrative, while the stunted shoptalk of the movie business struggles to keep up.With the wit of Steve Erickson’s Zeroville and the inventive spirit of Italo Calvino’sCosmicomics, John Domini offers a collection at once comical and moving, carefully suspended between a game of language and a celebration of American film.
