Writer and podcast host Katz presents a deep, deep dive into the history of the pop culture phenomenon TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer that includes analysis of its legacy and interviews with cast, crew, and big-name fans. This exhaustively researched book takes readers on a journey through reporting, biography, and memoir to the heart of the enduring love the fandom has for Buffy. Organized at first around the chronological progression from mediocre action flick to a season-by-season breakdown, the book is interspersed with asides and witticisms that entertain as well as bridge themes and interweave facts. The later section, about controversies and legacies, is approached with skill and empathy.
VERDICT Katz’s writing captures his own voice so well that his audiobook narration is pitch-perfect. A first purchase for nonfiction audio collections.
