NECROLOGY
My first artist’s book, Necrology, was published in 2021. It comprises forty-six photo portraits torn decades ago from obituaries in the New York Times, arranged in slyly humorous juxtapositions. Copies are available here.


THE FILM SNOB’S DICTIONARY
Published in 2006 and excerpted in Vanity Fair, The Film Snob’s Dictionary is, inexplicably, still in print. Back then my coauthor, David Kamp, and I touted it on radio shows like Leonard Lopate, and critics raved.

It endures off the shelves, too: In 2013 Vanity Fair launched a Snob’s Dictionary video series, and as recently as 2021 film critics were still quoting the book.
