The book was released back in 1996, and while reviews were somewhat harsh -- it doesn't get much worse than, "His callow cynicism about women and his flattened out, '90s rendition of Holden Caulfield grow wearisome". It's hard to say whether it was because critics had their knives out for an actor-turned-author, or maybe the book just wasn't that good. The film premiered at the 2006 Venice Film Festival, but much like the book, reviewers weren't exactly falling over themselves with praise. Hawke seems to be through with directing for now though, and the actor has since signed for double "vampire duty" in the horror flick Daybreakers, and The Countess with Before Sunrise co-star Julie Delpy. The Hottest State is set for a limited release on August 24.
