This book is interesting from the p.o.v. how scriptwriting. There is an interview with Paul Auster about how the screenplay for Smoke evolved from a short story he wrote. The screenplay for Smoke is a better than the movie is to watch. Blue in the Face started as an improvised movie, so Auster gives the scene outlines he gave the actors. A few month later, more controlled scenes were written and the movie was pieced together. This book includes all of pieces that formed the film and the screenplay in its intirety.
