Revue de presse

“America’s beloved indie rock band . . . the Pixies [laid] the sonic groundwork for such alternative acts as Nirvana and Radiohead.” (CNN)

Présentation de l'éditeur

From Pixies front man, Black Francis, comes a bold and visually arresting illustrated novel about art, conflict, and the origins of a certain type of cinema.

In 1907, the French battleship Iéna was destroyed when munitions it was carrying exploded, killing 120 people. A nitrocellulose-based weapon propellant had become unstable with age and self-ignited.

In 1908, La Bonne Auberge became the earliest known pornographic film. It depicted a sexual encounter between a French soldier and an innkeeper’s daughter. Like all films at the time, and for decades afterward, it was made with a highly combustible nitrocellulose-based film stock.

Loosely based on these historical events, The Good Inn follows the lone survivor of the Iéna explosion as he makes his way through the French countryside, has a sexual adventure with an innkeeper’s daughter, and even more deeply into a strange counter universe. It is a volatile world where war and art exist side by side. It is also the very real story of the people who made the first narrative pornographic film. The novel weaves together real historical facts to recreate this lost piece of history, as seen through the eyes of a shell-shocked soldier who finds himself the subject and star of the world’s first stag film. Through Soldier Boy’s journey we explore the power of memory, the simultaneously destructive and healing power of light, and how the early pioneers of stag films helped shape the film industry for generations to come.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Enaging, creative read for fans of film and art 30 avril 2014
Par greg w. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
As a cinephile, I loved the many inside references and depictions of actual historical events surrounding the birth of film. Outside of that, this book is filled with a fun sense of exploration and unhinged creativity that is sure to broaden perspectives and delight readers of all ages. The many messages are cleverly woven into the story without smacking you in the face, and I greatly enjoyed joining 'soldier boy' on his hallucinatory journey into the world of art. Steven Appleby's illustrations also make the book itself a gorgeously put together, classy piece.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The GREAT Inn! 30 avril 2014
Par David Mitchell Wyatt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I've been a fan of Josh Frank's work for years—since before Fool the World: The Oral History of a Band Called Pixies—and The Good Inn is his best work yet. It's a compelling read for PIXIES fans, graphic novel lovers, historical fiction, and French porn buffs as well. Couldn't recommend it enough. Buy two!

Intelligent, interesting and lovely book written by the great creative team of Black Francis and Josh Frank. So nice to read something "outside the box" that is still accessible.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Invention of Hugo Cabret...but with vintage porn! 26 juillet 2014
Par Rumblefish - Publié sur Amazon.com

If you, like me, are an adult who adored "The Invention of Hugo Cabret," then you should rejoice in the knowledge that there is now a book with the same setting, an equally creative use of illustrations, and the added bonus of vintage pornography. This book is very creative, whimsical, beautifully illustrated, and a really fun read. Merci a Black Francis and Josh Frank for this little gift.

If you are a fan of the Pixies and Black Francis, then this part-screenplay, part graphic novel, part history book, and part fiction may be up your alley. Although, I was intrigued by the concept, I found that it was a jumble of each and yet, not complete. It is a fast read, and I really wanted to enjoy it. Many other gave it rave reviews, but it was just okay in my eyes.
