Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper frayed at the top edge, some nicks and chips with fraying to the top corners. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Pages lightly age-tanned.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “With films such as The Brood and Videodrome David Cronenberg established himself as Canada’s most provocative director. But though he has been dubbed the ‘Baron of Blood’, his highly original brand of horror/science fiction has now matured far beyond the expectations of its ‘schlock’ origins.

With subsequent movies such as The Dead Zone, The Fly and Dead Ringers, Cronenberg has demonstrated not only his ability to touch painful nerves, but also to invest his own developing genre with seriousness, philosophical dimension and a rare emotional intensity.

Cronenberg on Cronenberg not only charts Cronenberg’s development, from maker of inexpensive ‘exploitation’ cinema to internationally renowned director of million-dollar movies, but also reveals the concerns and obsessions which continue to dominate his increasingly rich and complex work.”
