From the Back Cover:

The late 1980s and the 1990s saw a blossoming of US independant cinema, as an enormous variety of idiosyncatic and challenging film-makers and evolving film styles came to the fore. This reader combines interviews with directors, features on major genres and reviews of some of the key films released. A broad definition of the US indie film is adopted, including material on John Sayles, Gus van Sant, Jim Jarmusch, Spike Lee, Rose Troche, David Lynch, Todd Haynes, Quentin Tarantino, the Coen brothers and Hal Hartley. Writers include the UK critics Kim Newman and Jonathan Romery, as well as US critics Amy Taubin, B. Ruby Rich and J. Hoberman.
