William Goldman’s beloved novel has sold over one million copies. A movie, released twenty years ago, perfectly captured the spirit of the book and has introduced new fans to its pages ever since. In 1941 a young boy lies bedridden from pneumonia. His perpetually disheveled and unattractive father, an immigrant from Florin with terribly broken English, shuffles into his bedroom carrying a book. The boy wants to know if it has any sports. His father says, "Fencing. Fighting. Torture. Poison. True love. Hate. Revenge. Giants. Hunters. Bad men. Good men. Beautifulest ladies. Snakes. Spiders. Beasts of all natures and descriptions. Pain. Death. Brave men. Coward men. Strongest men. Chases. Escapes. Lies. Truths. Passions. Miracles." And the little boy, though he doesn’t know it, is about to change forever. As Goldman says, "What happened was just this. I got hooked on the story." And coming generations of readers will, too.



And coming generations of readers will too.

William Goldman has been writing books and movies for more than forty years. He has won two Academy Awards (for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and All the President's Men), and three Lifetime Achievement Awards in screenwriting.

    This is a good movie you should watch it. If you like funny movies with lots of kissing this is for you. It has lots of good characters and a good theme. Its a must see.

  • Great Story, Great Book.

    The movie was good, the book was better still. The artwork is lovely, and the pages clear and easy to read. It arrived in very good condition, and in good time as well. It will be a favorite for a long time to come, and I highly recomend it to other fans of the movie.

  • Movie was BETTER

    I'm glad I didn't spend alot of money on the book. The movie was so much better. The narrator cut in way to many times and the book was all over the place making you wonder where in the world that part came into play.....the movie was simple but sooo much better.
