The Shining, by Roger Luckhurst (BFI/Palgrave, 2013)

A critical discussion of the 1980 Kubrick adaptation of the Stephen King novel. And a fine thing, too. Though the film is well-trodden territory, Luckhurst’s approach draws fresh attention to the contexts of the work, its many borrowings, as well as to the potential value of a Freudian reading.

My own books are here, if that’s your thing. Newest is noir thriller East of England.
