Film and Visual Culture

In addition to The Cinema of Sofia Coppola, I have published articles and edited collections on film adaptation, chick flicks and visual culture. I am currently compiling The Bloomsbury Handbook to Sofia Coppola, a comprehensive reference work on the award-winning American director, with contributions on her films, commercial work, and cultural influence written by an international group of scholars and industry professionals.
