Synopsis

The seduction of fantasy, as opposed to the pain of real life, is a theme that has appeared in my work time and time again. This was something I never realized. It was pointed out to be my critics and friends over a period of years. "The purple rose of Cairo" is apparently my latest expression of this idea. (Some others were "Play it again Sam", "Zelig", "Stardust Memories" and my short story "The Kugelmass Episode"). I think this time I really did this subject the most entertainingly that I ever have and if you agree, I will not bother you with this theme again. Thank you.
