Fan-Tan A Novel by Marlon Brando & Donald Cammell

£10.00

Cult film director Donald Cammell, co-wrote this story with Brando in 1978. Cammell had known Brando since the 1960s and originally tried to model an early version of the film Performance around his involvement.  San-Tan began as a film script Brando but lost interest. Cammell having  done so much historical research,  developed the story into a novel, but again nothing from Brando….. It was posthumously published in 2005.

“While serving time in a Hong King prison in 1927, Anatole Doultry saves the life of a Chinese prisoner whose employer is Madame Lai Choi San, a beautiful and powerful Asian gangster who will make him wealthy if he will join her in an act of piracy.”

William Heinemann, 2005.
