Just hours later, an automobile accident compels Clover to forge a relationship with the new stepmother she hardly knows in this beautiful, enduring novel about a family lost and found.

From its first publication in 1992, Men, Women, and Chain Saws has offered a groundbreaking perspective on the creativity and influence of horror cinema since the mid-1970s. Investigating the popularity of the low-budget tradition, Carol Clover looks in particular at slasher, occult, and rape-revenge films. Although such movies have been traditionally understood as offering only sadistic pleasures to their mostly male audiences, Clover demonstrates that they align spectators not with the male tormentor, but with the females tormented—notably the slasher movie's "final girls"—as they endure fear and degradation before rising to save themselves. The lesson was not lost on the mainstream industry, which was soon turning out the formula in well-made thrillers. Including a new preface by the author, this Princeton Classics edition is a definitive work that has found an avid readership from students of film theory to major Hollywood filmmakers.

Although Clover was not founded until the Chester and Narrow-Gauge Railroad built a watering station in the area in the mid-1870s, its rich history dates back to the American Revolution. Kings Mountain State and National Military Parks, commemorating a patriot victory, are just minutes away. Clover's close proximity to Charlotte and the mountains has attracted many to York County, and its warm hometown atmosphere and strong sense of community make it a wonderful place to live. Images of America: Clover celebrates the history and people of Clover, from the early Scotch-Irish settlers to the present, with over 200 black-and-white images of local people, homes, industries, schools, churches, and community events. Readers are invited to contemplate a past filled with steam engines, horse-drawn carriages, and textile mills, while embracing modern-day Clover, including its sister city relationship with Larne in Northern Ireland.

"Joshua Clover finally puts the lie to the tiresome cliche that 'writing about music is like dancing about architecture.' He shows definitively that when the time is right, architecture is precisely what people do dance about."—Greil Marcus, author of Lipstick Traces
