Pulp fiction by Dana B Polan( Book )
15 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 46 libraries worldwide
"For many viewers Quentin Tarantino's films, especially Pulp Fiction (1994), defined American cinema in the 1990s. The films are hard, fast, funny, stylish and filled with clever allusions to other works of popular culture - they epitomise chic 90s post-modernism. Pulp Fiction was also a phenomenal cult success and one of the first films to be hotly debated in internet chatrooms and on fan websites." "Dana Polan sets out to unlock the style and technique of Pulp Fiction. He shows quite how broad Tarantino's points of reference are and analyses the film's considerable narrative accomplishment and complexity. Where middlebrow opinion tended to write off Pulp Fiction for its violence and its worship of cool, Polan shows how the film exemplifies new kinds of engagement with cultural and social codes (such as those of racial identity)."--Jacket
