Quentin Tarantino Recommends Some of His Favorite Books

Director Quentin Tarantino has shared some of his favorite books while promoting his debut novel, adapted from his movie of the same name, Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. While on The Big Picture Podcast, Tarantino expressed some interest in turning his breakthrough film, Reservoir Dogs into a novel. 

“I can definitely see the idea of a Reservoir Dogs novel. That could be really cool. And then I’m working on an original. It’s kinda pulpy. I’ve got a western idea, and I’ve written about two chapters of an original western novel,” he said. 

Some of Tarantino’s favorite books include: 9/30/55 and Eyewitness by John Minahan, The Moviegoer by Walker Percy, and The Omen by David Seltzer. Tarantino also said that he wouldn’t mind turning other people’s films into novels. 

“What I’d like to do, though, at some point, is find a movie that’s not mine and do a novelization,” he said. “It has to be something that I could really go my own way, but not completely upend the apple cart.”

During the interview, the two-time Oscar winner confirmed that his second book called, Cinema Speculation is almost complete. “I made a two-book deal…that’s the next one coming out, I’m almost done with it.”
