Whit Stillman : The Last Days of Disco (Tristram)

Having just made the film, starring Chloë Sévigny, director Whit Stillman adapted his screenplay into a book. The Last Days of Disco follows a group of young people in the early 1980s at the Club in Manhattan, an alter ego of Studio 54. With intertwining love lives and existential doubts, Whit Stillman‘s portrays a changing time when disco symbolizes the innocence of a city and a new generation that will soon be lost. A gripping book, both as funny as it is melancholy
