All books that have this kind of subject, like drugs, sex and other vices, are not on my taste. Anyway Almodovar treated the subject with a lot of wit and humor, and this helped me to finish the book.
My copy of this book is in romanian.

The Patty Diphusa Stories are really funny. They are a kind of fictional memoir of a porn star alter ego, written for a Madrid arts magazine in the eighties. You could tell Almodovar was making them up as he went along (and forgetting where he had left off) and it adds to the dry, casual craziness of them.

I would have probably loved the book if I hadn't actually read the Other Writings. Sometimes his analysis of his own work feels a bit pretentious. The essay-type writings don't say much about...more

Se, millaisen kuvan Almodóvar antaa itsestään, on tämän kirjan mielenkiintoisinta antia. Se, onko hän oikeasti niin groteski ja perverssi kuin tekstien pohjalta voisi päätellä, jää arvoitukseksi.

Pornotähti Patty Diphusaa koskevat tekstit olivat kirjan ehdoton helmi. Hahmo oli niin ylivedetyn ärsyttävä ja hurmaavan naiivi, ettei hänestä voinut kuin pitää - vaikka vähän vastentahtoisesti.

Almodóvar on tekstissä kuin elokuvansa: mielipiteitä ja vastalauseita aiheuttava, suulas, härski. Harmi, etteiv...more

Vienareikšmiškai nelabai malonų įspūdį palikusi knyga. Pasakojama banaliai, nuobodžiai, stengiantis pasipuikuoti gal net šokiruoti. Teksto norėta būti post-modernaus, bet tai vienas pavyzdžių kai tik noro nepakanka.Autorius daug smagiau atsiskleidžia "ir kiti tekstai". Vulgarokas kalbėjimo stilius šioje knygos dalyje žymiai stilingesnis, net priverčia šyptelėti. Visą laiką gailėjausi suvalgiusi Pati Difuzą - super porno žvaigždę, kuria matyt tenorėta pasišaipyti iš visuomenės, šiek tiek iš įvaiz...more

Pedro Almodovarin elokuvien ystäviä novellikokoelma ei petä. Kolmeen osaan jaetussa tekstisikermässä vajaat sata sivua on omistettu myyttiselle madridilaiselle kulahtaneelle pornotähdelle Patty Diphusalle; toisessa osassa perehdytään niin dadaismiin kuin kummallisiin seksuaalissävytteisiin lyhytkertomuksiin; lopuksi jaetaan setämäisen itseironisia ohjeita tuleville menestysohjaajille.

Surrealistisia piirteitä on havaittavissa nymfomaani-Pattyn sekoiluissa. Tämä ”nautinnon suurlähettiläs” makaa er...more

Antes de leer:

¿Necesitas movimiento en tu vida? ¿Desearías rodearte de una de esas personas que lo pueden todo, que parecen estar por encima de las circunstancias, que sólo viven el presente con confianza ciega en el futuro (porque no existe)? Si este es tu caso, Patty es tu mujer .Charlatana y sincera te dará las bofetadas que te tirarán de la burra al grito de "¡Despierta! ¡Estás viviendo!" En el fondo es como, Agrado my link text, pero más vulgar, más descarada. Si te gusta Almodóvar, te entu...more

Имах доста по- високи очаквания. В началото започва добре, но после автора сякаш забравя за героинята си и започва да разказва за личните си преживявания. Почувствах се с излъгани очаквания - исках да чета за тази самотна кучка и мизерното й съществуване, а попаднах на режисьорски разсъждения.

This is a great writer and I wanted to start with a book of short stories. Good thing. I'm not the most intellectual reader. I'm too literal sometimes and poetry can evade me sometimes. But as I read and sat with each story, the stories sank in. I think I'm a better reader now.

Nauditavalt otsekohene ja avameelne. Huvitav ja üsna täppis kirjeldus ideaalilähedasest kütkestajast ja sõbrannast, kes meestel jalad nõrgaks võtab. Tema mõtetest, unistustest, maailmatunnetusest. Lisaks väga mahlakas kohalike elu-olu ja peoelu kirjeldus. Väga soovitan!
Galina Petkova
харесвам повечето филми на Алмодовар, но книгата е ужасна според мен. Честно казано ако имаше оценка по-ниска от 1 щях да я дам. Нищичко не успя да ме грабне в образа на Пати, нищичко не успя да ме грабне в цялата книга.
Mikael Kuoppala
A delightful collection of the great Almodóvar's writings from the 80's. A must read for all of his fans, it shows many of the elements that make the director's films such masterpieces.
Sjonni
A collection of Almodovar's stories written by international sex symbol and porno actress Patty Diphusa. Great fun.
Ametista
Una delusione. Amo tanto l'Almodovar delle immagini e dei colori ma non quello della parola scritta.
Marina
This (fictional) diary of a porn star is a riot. It has the distinctive mark of Almodovar.

Recommends it for: alisa (i'll work on it, kiddo)
predictably outlandish and very funny. fist-in-mouth funny, sometimes, and very charming.
Patricia
Solo Patty Diphusa y la de Escarlata O'Hara. Los últimos sobran

A wild, funny ride through Almodovar's feminine side.
Carlos
A portrait of Madrid's "la movida". Cool book!

Pedro Almodóvar Caballero is a Spanish film director, screenwriter and producer.

Almodóvar is arguably the most successful and internationally known Spanish filmmaker of his generation. His films, marked by complex narratives, employ the codes of melodrama and use elements of pop culture, popular songs, irreverent humor, strong colors and glossy décor. Desire, passion, family and identity are among...more
