His current book,“Reconstructing Strangelove: Inside Stanley Kubrick’s ‘nightmare comedy”, which he describes as a “research monograph” is about the movie’s genesis, development, and assumption of its final form, and sets the record straight about much of the lore that and legends that have grown up around the movie.   The Sunday Times title for their review of the book was “Stanley Kubrick’s plan to flee nuclear attack foiled by toilet phobia”.
