Edited with text by Francesca Pietropaolo, Storr's Focal Points books represent a diverse range of independent subjects: Volume 1, Bruce Nauman, Volume 2, Ad Reinhardt, and a topical book on Storr’s experience working as a curator while living in Brooklyn, New York: Volume 3, Between a Rock and a Hard Place.

Brilliantly scholarly, accessible and engaging, Focal Points offers fresh interpretations of the varied territory of modern and contemporary art, following the critical success of Storr’s Writings on Art 1980–2005, Writings on Art 2006–2021 and Interviews on Art.
