KUBRICK RHAPSODY by Alessandro Manzetti & Karen Runge
In this powerful collection, multiple Bram Stoker award-winner Alessandro Manzetti combines forces with dark fiction author Karen Runge to create a volume of poems inspired by the films of master director Stanley Kubrick. Featuring additional short pieces by genre favorites RC Matheson, David J. Schow, John Skipp and Craig Spector, these written works trace the darkness, the beauty and the complex inner aspects of such films as The Shining, A Clockwork Orange, Lolita, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Full Metal Jacket, Eyes Wide Shut, Dr. Strangelove, Spartacus, Barry Lyndon, The Killing, Fear and Desire, and Paths of Glory. Viewing Kubrick’s work through a literary lens, these poems and creative pieces seek to explore the hidden textures and subtler tones of the characters and worlds built by Kubrick’s complex cinematic eye, still studied and lauded today.
