Separating Art from Artist…Except in the Case of Tarantino - prof_brotherton
Separating Art from Artist…Except in the Case of Tarantino

Mostly I think that readers and fans should separate art and artist.  Cliver Barker does not want to sign your book in blood.  Stephen King is not a serial killer.  The author of that true-to-life book about the Green Berets is an overweight housewife from Sacramento.  Atheists can write convincingly about the religious, and vice versa.  With a good writer who has done their research, their characters will be real and full of attributes and knowledge that may not fit in with the author’s at all.

Then, I must admit, there are cases where what you see is what you get.  I’ve written before about Tarantino’s apparent foot fetish.  Well, now there’s more.  The Quentin Tarantino Toe-Sucking Email that will Haunt Your Dreams.  It’s pretty much what it sounds like.  As far as I can tell, it’s real and not a hoax.  Too detailed and weird not to share, especially after the previous blog post.
