Abstract:

"David Cronenberg is the first book to explore how underground and mainstream fiction have influenced - and can help illuminate - his labyrinthine films. Film scholar Mark Browning examines Cronenberg's literary aesthetic not only in relation to his films' obvious source material, but by comparing his movies to the writings of Vladimir Nabokov, Angela Carter, and Bret Easton Ellis. This volume addresses Cronenberg's narrative structures and his unique conception of auteurism, as well as his films' shocking psychological frameworks, all in the broader context of film adaptation studies."--Jacket.
