Autor: Darran Mann
Paperback / 200 Seiten
The first ever book about Asia Argento
, this is a passionate ode
to Dario's talented
daughter, who the author believes is the most intelligent
and hard working
individual to come out of her native Italy in the last twenty five years.
Having had to build a facade to hide her own insecurities, she often found herself at the mercy of the critics who viciously attacked her through a misunderstanding of who she was
and what she represented
. From her solitary childhood in Rome, living in the shadow of her famous parents
, on through her difficult adolescence and finally on into parenthood and marriage, this book is as unique as its subject matter.
On the Wings of an Angel is packed with over 380 photographs and is the first major publication dedicated to the scarlet diva. Acting directing, modeling, writing, d-jaying
and her highly stylized artwork
are all covered at length. Finally completed by 38 detailed synopses spanning her entire catalogue of films, this is a must-have for her ever growing legions of fans.
