9781906838867: The Good Inn

From Pixies frontman Black Francis, in collaboration with writer Josh Frank and artist Steven Appleby, comes The Good Inn, a bold and visually arresting novel about art, conflict, and the origins of a certain type of cinema.In 1907, the French battleship Iena was destroyed when a nitrocellulose-based weapon propellant it was carrying became unstable with age and self-ignited, killing 120 people. A year later, La Bonne Auberge became the earliest-known pornographic film, depicting an intimate encounter between a French soldier and an innkeeper's daughter. Like all films at the time, and for decades afterwards, it was made with a highly combustible nitrocellulose-based film stock. Loosely based on historical events, The Good Inn follows the lone survivor of the Iena explosion as he makes his way through the French countryside. He falls into a strange love affair with an innkeeper's daughter and, even more deeply, into a volatile counter-universe where war and art exist side by side.But The Good Inn is also the very real story of the people who made the world's first pornographic film. Francis and Frank weave together real historical facts to re-create this lost piece of history, as seen through the eyes of a shell-shocked soldier who finds himself that film's subject and star. Through his journey we explore the power of memory, the simultaneously destructive and restorative power of light, and how the early pioneers of pornography helped shape the film industry for generations to come.

From the Back Cover :

From legendary Pixies front man, Black Francis, in collaboration with writer Josh Frank and renowned illustrator Steven Appleby, comes The Good Inn, a bold and visually arresting novel about art, conflict, and the origins of a certain type of cinema

In 1907, the French battleship Iéna was destroyed when a nitrocellulose-based weapon propellant it was carrying became unstable with age and self-ignited, killing 120 people. A year later, La Bonne Auberge became the earliest-known pornographic film, depicting an intimate encounter between a French soldier and an innkeeper's daughter. Like all films at the time, and for decades afterward, it was made with a highly combustible nitrocellulose-based film stock.

Loosely based on historical events, The Good Inn follows the lone survivor of the Iéna explosion as he makes his way through the French countryside. He falls into a strange love affair with an innkeeper's daughter and, even more deeply, into a volatile counteruniverse where war and art exist side by side.

But The Good Inn is also the very real story of the people who made the world's first stag film, and Francis weaves together real historical facts to re-create this lost piece of history, as seen through the eyes of a shell-shocked soldier who finds himself that film's subject and star. Through his journey we explore the power of memory, the simultaneously destructive and restorative power of light, and how the early pioneers of pornography helped shape the film industry for generations to come.

About the Author :

Black Francis is an American singer, songwriter and musician. Best know as the frontman for cult rock band Pixies, he has also had a successful solo career under the name Frank Black. His songs have inspired musicians from Tom Yorke to Kurt Cobain, the latter claiming that "Smells like teen Spirit" was his "attempt to rip off the Pixies". Black Francis reformed The Pixies in 2004 and continues to tour with them. Josh Frank is the author of the Pixies biography Fool the World. He has also written a biography of the musician Peter Ivers, In Heaven Everything is Fine. Steven Appleby has created cartoon strips for many magazines and newspapers, including The Guardian, the NME, the Times and the Sunday Telegraph. The author of over 20 books, he has also worked in TV, radio and musical theatre.
