ReFocus: The Films of Amy Heckerling by Timothy Shary ReFocus: The Films of Amy Heckerling, Hardback (February 2016)

This is the first study of the work of Amy Heckerling, the phenomenally popular director and writer of Clueless and Fast Times at Ridgemont High. The book constitutes a significant intervention in Film Studies, prompting a reconsideration of the importance of Heckerling both to the development of teen cinema and as a figure in Hollywood comedy.

Generation Multiplex by Timothy Shary Generation Multiplex, Paperback (January 2014)

A study of the representation of teenagers in American cinema since David Considine's Cinema of Adolescence in 1985. It reaffirms the idea that films about youth constitute a legitimate genre worthy of study on its own terms.
