The thirty-eight tales ofCinema Storiescombine fact and fiction, and they all revolve around movie-making. The book compresses a lifetime of feeling, thought, and practice: Klugeconsidered the father of New German Cinemais an inventive wellspring of narrative notions. "The power of his prose," asSmall Pressnoted, "exudes the sort of pregnant richness one might find in the brief scenarios of unknown films."Cinema Storiesis a treasure box of cinematic lore and movie magic by "Alexander Kluge, that most enlightened of writers" (W. G. Sebald).
