"The Last Dream", which Pedro Almodóvar describes as a “fragmentary autobiography” and a “little cryptic”, contains 12 stories that reflect common themes of his cinematic work, including comedy, autofiction, parody, pastiche and the gothic.
With captivating ease, the author allows the reader a glimpse into his mind and heart. He shares his thoughts, experiences, moods, joys, disappointments, phobias, experimental searches. More than a fragmented autobiography, this multi-faceted and multi-layered short prose, written with cinematic tightness, expressiveness and subtle humor, is the self-portrait of an original creator passionately devoted not only to cinema but also to writing.
Faithful to himself, just as in the cinema, the writer Pedro Almodovar excites and provokes with extraordinary ideas, unexpected twists and strong suggestions.
