“Grindhouse Girls: Cinema’s Hardest Working Women” Acquired by St. Martin’s Press
We’re very proud to announce that our horror G33K, Lianne Spiderbaby’s book has officially found a publisher!
St. Martin’s Press has acquired the North American rights to “GRINDHOUSE GIRLS: CINEMA’S HARDEST WORKING WOMEN“. The book is currently undergoing the editing process and is expected to be released in late 2013/early 2014 with a forward written by Quentin Tarantino.
Journalist Lianne Spiderbaby is writing an in-depth look at the infamous exploitation actresses of the 1970s and 80s and how their groundbreaking films reflected the societal changes occurring around them and influenced a generation of filmmaking, GRINDHOUSE GIRLS: Cinema’s Hardest Working Women profiles, celebrates, and tells the story of these fascinating women who took great risks to get ahead in their career, who stripped naked for the cameras, had their hair matted with stage blood, who took chances on directors that didn’t have much money or means to create their outrageous visions. Women like Tura Satana, Pam Grier, and Sybil Danning maintain an aura of strength, fearless in the face of men and crime. There is no better time to acknowledge the actresses that gave us everything that most Hollywood actresses could not: sex, drugs, violence, shock, rock, and rebellion.
Quentin Tarantino will write the foreword.
Brendan Deneen at St. Martin’s Press acquired North American rights.
Congratulations Lianne, we’re all looking forward to reading Grindhouse Girls! Stay tuned for more Grindhouse Girls scoop as we get it!
