Superstar by Dr. Glyn Davis
Book DescriptionBanned by the Carpenter estate, Todd Haynes' experimental biopic "Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story" (which uses Barbie dolls to narrate the tragic life of the American singer) has become a cult hit because of both its controversy and its rarity. This study details the film's fascinating history: its production and initial reception, its journey through the courts, and its bootleg circulation among fans. It also explores "Superstar"'s rich, provocative, and moving content, paying close attention to the film's aesthetics, generic form, and cultural position as a hybrid text.

Far From Heaven, Hardback (June 2011)» View all books by Dr. Glyn Davis
This book is a study of Far from Heaven, a commercially successful film that nevertheless sits rather ambiguously on the boundary between independent and mainstream cinema, operating as an alternative to 'blockbuster' fare.
