Harper Perennial "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood: A Novel," from Harper Perennial, will be available on June 29, 2021.
"In the movie, Cliff is a real enigma, you're kind of like, what's this guy's deal?" said Tarantino. "And one of the things in the book is, there's these isolated chapters that tell you, like, this whole chapter will be about Cliff's past. It goes back in time to tell you about Cliff at this point in time. And then you go further on with the normal run of the story and there's another chapter that goes back in time and tells you about Cliff's past. And every isolated chapter that's just about Cliff's past is like a weird little pulp novel unto itself starring Cliff."
