Kurt Andersen Presents:
Dr. No
1962

One Night Only: Friday, August 17, 2012 (7pm)

Join us in celebrating the publication of True Believers, the acclaimed new novel (Vanity Fair: “a great American novel”) from author, Studio 360 host, and Film Streams Advisory Board Member Kurt Andersen.

The book is a political thriller and love story set in the 1960s and present day featuring a main character who is James-Bond-obsessed -- thus we will present a special 50th anniversary screening of the original Bond film DR. NO (1962), with a post-show discussion and book-signing with Kurt. Copies of True Believers will be available for purchase at the theater on the night of the event.

PRAISE FOR KURT ANDERSEN’S TRUE BELIEVERS:

“Andersen’s best book to date…a great American novel.” —Jon Robin Baitz, Vanity Fair

“Andersen creates spellbinding suspense. This is an ambitious and remarkable novel, wonderfully voiced, about memory, secrets, guilt, and the dangers of certitude. Moreover, it asks essential questions about what it means to be an American and, in a sense, what it means to be America.” —Booklist, starred review

“Kurt Andersen’s best yet. The man is operating on some far-out level that bends time and space to his will. True Believers hits all the right notes and reads like a goddamn dream.” —Gary Shteyngart

“As absorbing as the story is, what makes the novel spellbinding is [the heroine's] fascinating, layered character — at once brilliant and irreverent, brimming with equal parts intelligence and humor. A master of simple yet tremendously evocative narrative, [Andersen] moves swiftly between well-timed wit, without a hint of smugness.” —Maria Popova, Brain Pickings

“This witty, imaginative novel is one part bildungsroman, one part political thriller and one part contemplation on age — and in all aspects wonderful reading.” —Scott Turow

“The public intellectual has become a rare creature in America, but Kurt Andersen has helped keep it from going extinct.” —Carolyn Kellogg, Los Angeles Times
