About the Authors: Nancy Peske and Beverly West arefilm fanatics, best friends, identical cousins, and the coauthors of Bibliotherapy: The Girl’s Guide to Books for Every Phase of Our Lives, Meditations for Men Who Do Next to Nothing (and Would Like to Do Even Less); How to Satisfy a Woman Every Time on Five Dollars a Day; and Frankly Scarlett, I Do Give a Damn! Classic Romances Retold. They live in New York City, where they spend much of their time debating such sophistocated cinematic polemics as the merits of Gary Oldman’s ripe Camembert excess as opposed to Alan Rickman’s quarter-pounder stoicism, and the far-reaching cultural implications of Brad Pitt’s haircut.
