Yul is out, out in the world!

Screenshot 2022-09-08 at 16.59.53My pandemic refuge project, Yul Brynner: Exoticism, Cosmopolitanism and Screen Masculinity, is very freshly out. A Yul project was something I toyed with for years before eventually penning an article (out in Screen in 2019); without COVID-19 lockdowns, it is unlikely that I could have found the time for the kind of archival work that this book took. Trust me on this: both immersive and extensive.

It has been a pleasure to work with Edinburgh University Press and the editors of the International Film Stars series on this. Having opened the book on many a page by now, I have not noticed a typo yet. A personal first. A more affordable paperback version should be out in 2024; the 30% discount code NEW30 for the HB one may or may not still work.
