Director Steven Soderbergh Writes Twitter Novella
Steven Soderbergh, the supposedly retired director of Traffic, Schizopolis, and all those Oceans movies, has dipped his toes into a new kind of storytelling: fiction writing. The Hollywood Reporter reports that filmmaker has penned a serial novella titled Glue and self-published the work through his ghost Twitter account @Bitchuation. Written in second person and featuring accompanying photographs, Soderbergh has already released the first seven chapters, with more no doubt soon to come. Let's take a look at the first few lines, shall we?
It was difficult for you not to assume the worst after the way your funeral went down. The whole thing seemed like a parody of itself.
Like anything else, the #&%# was only valuable because everyone wanted it and nobody had it.
You’ve become the receptacle for everything forgotten, and an impulse can only be ignored for so long before people begin to wonder.
I gotta admit, that's intriguing.
The aforementioned Hollywood Reporter article features the first seven chapters arranged in sequence, so if you dislike reading bottom to top, check it out there. And of course, you can follow @Bitchuation for updates to the story.
Any fans of Soderbergh happy to see his swan song won't be Magic Mike?
