The Pocket Essentials Series is a dynamic series of books that are concise, lively, and easy to read. Packed with facts as well as expert opinions, each book has all the key information you need to know about such popular topics as film, television, cult fiction, history, and more.

This guide to Hal Hartley's career and films is written by the director of Trouble and Desire, a Hartley documentary. Having interviewed Hartley extensively for the film, Wood offers the first text to concentrate solely on the work of this esoteric New Yorker, a peer to such distinctive and admired independent directors as Jim Jarmusch and Kevin Smith.
