Product description

About the Author

GLENN KENNY is a Senior Editor and Chief Film Critic for Premiere magazine. He lives in Brooklyn, New York. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

A collection of original essays by some of America's most notable young writers on the cultural impact of the Star Wars films, A Galaxy Not So Far Away is the first exploration of the innumerable ways the films have altered our cultural landscape. Edited by Glenn Kenny, a senior editor at Premiere magazine, this collection allows some of the highly perceptive writers to anatomise, criticise, celebrate, and sometimes simply riff on the prismatic after-effects of an unparalleled American phenomenon. Jonathan Lethem writes of the summer he saw Star Wars 21 times as his mother lay dying of cancer. Neal Pollack provides the putative memoir of a young man having problems with his father, written in the voice of Holden Caulfield. An intriguing assemblage of pop writing at its quirkiest. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Born in Fort Lee, N.J., now living in Kings County New York, Glenn Kenny is a film and music critic whose work appears in The New York Times, RogerEbert.com, and other outlets. For ten years he was the chief film critic of Premiere magazine. In 2002 he edited and wrote the introduction to "A Galaxy Not Too Far Away: Writers and Artists on 25 Years of 'Star Wars.'" In 2014 he authored "Anatomy of an Actor: Robert De Niro" for Cahiers du Cinema/Phaidon. That book was called "the finest book on De Niro yet" by The Film Stage. This year sees the publication of his most exciting book project, a definitive account of the making of the classic gangster film "Goodfellas," to be released in October 2020 by Hanover Square Press.
