The first of the books will be called Ayoade On Ayoade, and is scheduled for publication in November 2014. The book is described as being about “a film-maker exploring himself, respectfully, insightfully, and sometimes by surprise….it is both a celebration and a slap: a call to arms for those without weapons. It is a eulogy; it is a rebirth; it is both recognition and re-ignition of this flickering myth we call film.” Blimey.

Faber & Faber have said of the partnership: “We’re thrilled to announce a three-book deal with Richard Ayoade. The books will combine Ayoade’s furious obsession with film with his innate sense of life’s ridiculousness.”

Ever humble, Ayoade responded by saying: “Faber & Faber has long been one of the most respected and prestigious publishing houses in the country. It is with great pleasure that I can be present at the start of its decline.”

With regards to the other strings to Ayoade’s bow, don’t forget that his second feature film, a modern adaptation of Dostoevsky’s The Double, will be released this April too.

  2. I’ll give Ayoade’s book a go, but I don’t have any hope for The Double to gain any Oscars. Love, Barbara Date: Tue, 4 Mar 2014 00:04:22 +0000 To: barbara1926@live.co.uk
