OCAD U E-Reserves and Learning Zone Technician Lindsay Gibb’s first book has been listed by the National Post as one of the 99 best books of 2015. Gibb calls National Treasure: Nicolas Cage a critique/celebration of Cage’s style of acting and the range of roles he has chosen over his career.

Gibb is a journalist who has been at OCAD U since 2013, having worked in the library for the previous two years as a reference intern. She is in the early stages of writing her next book.

Interviewed by Metro Toronto, Gibb admits that her fondness for the actor turned into “a bit of an obsession” while researching the book.

The book is part of the ECW (entertainment culture writing) Press Pop Classics series and is widely available in bookstores and online.

“I didn’t know I wanted to understand Nicolas Cage until I read Lindsay Gibb’s book. Now I’m sure of it.” — Jesse Wente, director of film programmes, TIFF Bell Lightbox.
