Read full description of the books:From the cult favorite Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which netted four million viewers per episode, to the summer blockbuster The Avengers, which amassed a box office of $1.5 billion, Joss Whedon has made a name for himself in Hollywood for his penchant for telling meaningful, personal tales about love, death, and redemption even against the most dramatic and larger-than-life backdrops. This biography follows his development from a creative child and teenager who spent years away from his family at an elite English public school, through his early successes—which often turned into frustrating heartbreak in both television (Roseanne) and film (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)—to his breakout turn as the creator, writer, and director of the Buffy television series. Extensive, original interviews with Whedon’s family, friends, collaborators, and stars—and with the man himself—offer candid, behind-the-scenes accounts of the making of groundbreaking series such as Buffy, Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse, as well as new stories about his work with Pixar writers and animators during the creation of Toy Story. Most importantly, however, these conversations present an intimate and revealing portrait of a man whose creativity and storytelling ability have manifested themselves in comics, online media, television, and film.
Read information about the authorWhile Amy Pascale’s first “official” fandom was My So-Called Life in 1994, she was turning down friends’ invites to play at the age of three because she was “watching her shows” — Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers.
That was the beginning of a lifelong love affair with television storytelling, understanding the importance of scheduling life around TV and perhaps most importantly: learning to judge people by the shows they watch.
Not surprisingly, she has worked in on-air and online media for over fifteen years. Amy is currently the Director of Strategy in MTV’s On-Air Promos department, where she also gets to write the words that come out of the mouths of Teen Wolves, Banshees, Hunters and Awkward kids trying to make it through high school. She co-founded and edits the offbeat online magazine PopGurls.com – which, along with her day job, is her excuse for watching as much television as she does (a lot).
She also now knows a whole lot about Joss Whedon — possibly even more than the man knows about himself.
