The Huffington Post named Abel's Menus for Movieland a "Best Film Book of 2016." Praises The Post, "[The book] explores the way one traditional medium aided another then new medium. Abel offers a richly textured view of early film stardom, early film criticism, advertising campaigns, and even fan activities on both the local and national level. Published late last year, this fascinating book is a fascinating read." For more on Menus for Movieland, please click here.
