According to David Thomson's introduction (he edited the book), Brando would act scenes out while Cammell wrote them down. This makes me laugh because the only Brando improv I know is the "I think I swallowed a bug" scene from Hearts of Darkness, which is not exactly inspiring. That said, however, the novel sounds awesome. It's a big, pulpy story about a guy named Annie (trust Brando to create a role for himself whose name alone would confuse people) and his work for "Asia's most notorious female gangster," a woman with whom, of course, he has a lot of sex. In addition to sex, Fan-Tan offers pirates and storms and lies and fighting - really, what more could we ask for? Pre-order button, here I come.
